Barker credits Bucks

AmaZulu coach Steve Barker has given newly promoted National First Division side Mthatha Bucks credit for their performances and believes they will be a surprise package.

Bucks will play their first League match on Sunday against Vasco Da Gama at home at the Mthatha Stadium in the Eastern Cape .

Bucks and Usuthu met recently in two friendly matches in Durban and Barker was impressed with Bucks.

In the first game AmaZulu won 2-1 and in the second game it was the Eastern Cape side that won 3-1.

“Obviously it’s not easy when you’ve just been promoted to have a side ready to compete, but Mthatha Bucks showed they’ve got a good side that can surprise a lot of teams,” said Barker.

AmaZulu and Bucks will face each other in the National First Division on 4 October at the Princess Magogo Stadium in KZN.
