Moroka Swallows' veteran skipper, Lefa Tsutsulupa maintains it’s not yet all over for the Dube Birds despite being handed their third consecutive defeat by Bidvest Wits on Tuesday night and suffering their 11th defeat of the season.
The Birds currently find themselves languishing in 14th spot on the PSL table, having amassed 19 points in 20 league fixtures. With only 10 league games remaining and 30 points still to play for, Swallows will have to ensure they win the majority of their league games to haul themselves out of the relegation zone.
“We have not had a good start to 2015, which is concerning because we had hoped the mid-season break would have served us well,” said the Birds captain.
“If you look at our last two games of 2014 we had picked up some momentum with our draw against Orlando Pirates and an away win against AmaZulu.”
“Even though we find ourselves in this precarious situation it’s not over, it’s far from over. There are still 10 games left and a lot of points to play for. The teams above us can still get sucked in the bottom three,” highlighted the midfielder.
"Against Wits we conceded goals from set pieces something that we normally don't do. A second in lapse of concentration can cost you a match and we need to be focused going forward."
“There is plenty of fight in us and the Birds supporters can be rest assured of that. We want to protect the legacy of this great club and it will be up to us to do that. Swallows is too big of a club to go down and I will ensure that doesn't happen, " concluded the skipper.
