Usuthu currently sits on eighth place in the league this season. They are two slots behind The Glamour Boys.
Despite this, Baxter has still resorted to flattery ahead of the game this evening. AmaZulu have not shown the form that they did last season, when they finished in a club record second place at the end of the campaign.
This time around, the visitors have found the going a lot harder than last campaign.
“AmaZulu are one of the top teams, one of the best teams we’ve played this year.” Baxter told the media, ahead of the game.
“I think Benni’s done a good job with them. They are an aggressive, well organised team.
“I’ve watched all of their games and I don’t think anybody has had an easy ride against them and they are a constant threat, and they keep going. I thought we played well against them down there to get a draw and we’re going to have to play very well against them here to get a win.
“But we feel we are in a decent space. If we can go again in these conditions of many games in a short time, if we can achieve a little bit more consistency, I think we’ve got enough in our armoury to give them a problem.” He added.
