Cape Town - Baroka FC midfielder Mxolisi Kunene believes they have it in them, as a team, to flee from relegation threatened position and remain in the PSL for next season.

Occupying 16th position, Baroka cannot afford to drop any points despite have a game in hand.

Kunene admits that they know that need to win their remaining fixtures and they are ready for the challenge.

"It is possible (to escape relegation) and I’m 100% sure that we’ll do it,” said Kunene.

He acknowledged that their next game against Sundowns will be tough but feels that they have enough matches to remedy the situation. 

"I'm not saying we'll lose against Sundowns, but even if we do, we still have Arrows, Highlands Park who are also struggling at the bottom and Ajax as our last game," he said. 

"I'm sure we can get three points in those matches.

"There is no game that I can say is easy because everybody is fighting for their lives now. If we support each other and play as a team, we can win the remaining games. 

"It is going to be difficult. We are in a bad position and we have to fight each and every game. As a team we have to double the effort," said Kunene.

The winger said they have identified their mistakes at the back which have cost them a couple of crucial points and they are working on fixing those chinks in their amour. 

"We have been conceding in dying minutes in the last few games,” said Kunene.

"If you check, when we were playing Pirates, we conceded in the last seconds of the game. The same thing happened against Bloemfontein Celtic. The coach is trying to fix that."
