Rosslee has just six games left in the season to get the
club as far up the table as possible.
"We are happy to have Craig as our new coach. We

the bottom of the table.

"We haven't been playing badly especially when Fani was
still with us," Chabangu said.
"We just didn't have the luck to win games and that is
what cost us, that's what's been costing us the entire season.
"We have the players to get out of the relegation zone

few top teams and players, I truly believe we will retain our status in the
elite league despite many people writing us off already.
"We will turn the corner."
