The National First Division outfit's hopes of playing in
South Africa's top division next season took a knock after they lost their
opening game to fellow NFD side Black Leopards 2-0.
Cosmos now face the daunting task of needing to earn points
against Swallows on Sunday, the favourites to win the playoffs, or will find
themselves in a more precarious position.
To make the task more difficult, the Dube Birds comfortably
beat Black Leopards 2-0 in the second match of the playoffs while seemingly not
at the top of their game.
Ezenkosi boss Jomo Sono believes his side played well
against Leopards in the first game but lacked the cutting edge in front of
goal, something he hopes to rectify for this weekend's clash.
"They [Leopards] took their chances, they took their
two chances and scored, we controlled the game and we never took our
chances," Sono told the Premiership's official website.
"I give my players credit, they played well, they gave
their best against big crowds like this. It's not over yet and we have a long,
long way to go.
"We have to make sure they don't beat us at home, we'll
give them the same medicine they gave us and if we don't lose our games at
home, we're back in contention."
