Amazulu have vowed to defend themselves against allegations of misconduct from a section of their supporters.

Usuthu face a charge of misconduct and contravening rule 54 of NSL Handbook. This after AmaZulu supporters allegedly spat at the match officials around the tunnel area after their Absa Premiership fixture against Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium on February 16.

Usuthu will appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee April 11.

Club spokeperson Brilliant Mkhathini has made it clear that they will defend themselves in front of the PSL DC.

“They have to produce the evidence about those allegations. We were playing away at Harry Gwala Stadium. The stadium belongs to Maritzburg not AmaZulu. If this was the case, did Maritzburg provide sufficient security as the home team on the day? We can’t be responsible while we were playing away. They need to prove the allegations. Was it really their our supporters or theirs? There’s a lot happened in that game,” Mkhathini explained.

“There was a scuffle that occurred between our coach (Cavin Johnson) and Maritzburg United official. I’m puzzled that this has come up but we will go there and put facts to defend ourselves,” Mkhathini concluded.

AmaZulu are preparing for their next Absa Premiership assignment away to Bloemfontein Celtic at Dr Molemela Stadium on Sunday afternoon (3pm).

Usuthu are oozing confidence after their 2-1 midweek, home win over Ajax Cape Town at King Zwelithini Stadium .
