Cape Town - University of Pretoria striker Atusaye Nyondo admits the club are in a dire position, but insists they will give everything to avoid relegation from the Premiership.

AmaTuks fears of the drop were compounded after Tshwane rivals Mamelodi Sundowns secured the Premiership title at the Tuks stadium, comfortably beating the home side 3-0.
