The South Africa under-20 international is aware of how
vital every point is the club in the run in to the end of the season and admits
they cannot afford to drop any more points.
"There is hope that we can still remain in the
Premiership if we continue working hard," he told the club's official
"We are now playing to save our lives. Every player is
aware of the importance of winning or at least what a point can do."
AmaZulu took a big step in the right direction at the
weekend when they beat relegation rivals Free State Stars to move within two
points of safety.
The club's next game is against league-leading Kaizer Chiefs
on Thursday, but Liphoko says who they play no longer matters.
"We are taking each game very seriously, irrespective
of who we are playing against," he added.
"We must keep on being positive. Yes, a point away from
is ideal, but a win is a must and we are not expecting any defeats. We can't
afford to drop any points now."
Usuthu are bottom of the league standings, two points behind
Free State Stars and Moroka Swallows.
