Rosslee makes Usuthu bow v Leopards

Black Leopards will look for a third win in the space of four Absa Premiership matches when they host AmaZulu at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday, kick-off at 7:30pm CAT (SA, GMT+2).

Lidoda Duvha are placed ninth on the Absa Premiership log with 15 points from 12 matches.

AmaZulu, who have appointed Craig Rosslee to replace Roger Palmgren, suffered their seventh defeat of the season in their last outing, going down 1-0 at home to Free State Stars.

The Durban side has recorded just two points from a possible 18 on their travels so far this season.

Usuthu are placed 16th on the Absa Premiership log with nine points from 12 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Leopards and AmaZulu have met in 10 league matches since 2001/02.

Each side has five wins to their name, while Usuthu has scored 16 goals to Leopards’ 13.

The Limpopo side has recorded three victories and two defeats in their five home matches against the Durban visitors.

Last season Lidoda Duvha won 1-0 in Durban, while Usuthu claimed a 4-1 victory in the return game in Polokwane.
