Mvela Golden league side Zulu Royals are now firmly on track for promotion to the PSL after they thrashed Vasco Da Gama 4-0 at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Sunday.
With second placed Free State Stars being held to a draw to Cape side FC Fortune at the Wynberg Military Stadium, Usuthu have now opened a four point lead at the top of the log and look set to bounce back to the top flight if they can continue with their excellent form.
The team has retained many of their top stars from the team which played in the PSL last season, including Jackie Ledwaba, who is second on the top goal scorers list with six goals.
Top of the list is University of Pretoria striker Lerato Chabangu with eight goals.
The national under-20 striker has just returned from Italian side Udinese, and looks set for a big future in the game.
