Today's Absa Premiership encounter between Lamontville Golden Arrows and neighbours AmaZulu is going to be won in the middle of the park.

The two teams, which boast workaholic and skilful midfielders, meet at King Zwelithini stadium at 3.30pm.

Abafana Bes'thende and Bafana Bafana midfield gem Kagiso Dikgacoi says they will go all out for a win over struggling Usuthu.

"You can expect nothing less than a win for us. We need the three points since

we want to see ourselves in a better position on the log. So far so good and we are working hard to keep up the momentum of the team," said Dikgacoi.

He said his combination with Papi Zothwane in the middle of the park was bearing fruit.

"We have been playing together for a long time and we understand each other pretty well and it's now showing. We are playing as a unit and that is very important," he said.

His counterpart at Usuthu, Bafo Biyela, believes the derby will be the turning point in their season after a poor start to the second round.

On his day Biyela can create chances out of nothing.

"It's going to be a tough game, considering that it's a derby, and that we did not do well in our opening [second-round] matches, but this could also be a blessing in disguise for us to play them early so that we can boost our confidence," said Biyela.

The workaholic midfielder believes the fact that Abafana Bes'thende beat them in the first round would add to the competition between the two sides.

"We can't take away the fact that they are playing better these days, but it's time for us to reclaim our dominance in the province."
