Cape Town - University of Pretoria defender Sibusiso Mthethwa admits the odds are stacked against his team to win the PSL play-offs.

AmaTuks will need Mbombela United to beat Highlands Park on Wednesday to avoid relegation to the National First Division.

Shaun Bartlett's side have already lost twice in the three-team relegation/promotion play-offs, but Mthethwa wants his team-mates to keep the faith ahead of the decider.

"It is very tough now, but we haven't lost hope and we are now depending on Mbombela beating Highlands, and then to win the next two games with plenty of goals," Mthethwa told KickOff.

"We have to fight whatever way and it will be do-or-die. But we are clinging to the hope that Mbombela do us a favour and we have to make sure that the last two matches we win at all costs."
