Mugeyi has been holding the fort at Usuthu following the departure of Craig Rosslee following a string of poor results which has left the Durban club rock bottom of the Absa Premiership standings.

Under Mugeyi, the KwaZulu-Natal side has showed signs of improvement but they have not been consistent.

This evening sees them host table-toppers Amakhosi at Moses Mabhida Stadium in a PSL match.

Chiefswill be looking to get back to winning ways after losing their last match, a Telkom Knockout game against Platinum Stars.

In the league, Stuart Baxter’s men are still unbeaten and this is their 10th match of the current season.

With Chiefs striker Kingston Nkhatha declaring the desire of the team’s strikers to get back onto the scoresheet on a regular basis and planning to use the match against AmaZulu as their springboard, Usuthu’s defence should be wary of this.

Former SuperSport United coach Cavin Johnson has been linked with the post at the Durban club but the team have said they will give Mugeyi a chance to prove his worth.

Whether Mugeyi can take over the job at Usuthu or not is something which will be decided after tonight’s match against Amakhosi.

The match starts at 7.30pm.
