Craig Rosslee hoping for TKO turnaround
AmaZulu coach Craig Rosslee believes his side can turn the tables on Bloemfontein Celtic when the two sides meet in a Telkom Knockout Round of 16 encounter at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Saturday night.
The two sides have already crossed paths in the Absa Premiership, a match which ended 2-0 in favour of the Free State-based club at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
However, Rosslee believes his side will end up on the winning side this time around if they avoid the mistakes which cost them three points earlier this season.
“It’s not about Celtic – it’s more about us and how we turn ourselves around into the winning mentality,” Rosslee said. “At the end of the day winning has to be the order of the day and that’s what we have to instill.
“It’s disheartening because we concede early from a poor mistake and that’s hitting us badly. Last season we were able to win games in the last minute because we were able to keep clean sheets.
“Nothing is impossible. The club set their targets high and that’s what we want and everything is achievable,” he added.
“Nobody has won any cup yet besides the MTN8 so it’s an opportunity for the players and every week is an opportunity to achieve.
“There are still a lot of points to play for and no-one has gone anywhere except the top two teams so everyone is still in the mix.
“We need to remember that we are still a good team and we need to respond in a manner which shows that we appreciate the faith that the club has shown in us.”
