Cape Town - Jomo Cosmos goalkeeper, Sherwin Naicker, has spoken to Sport 24 in the build up to the clubs’ do-or-die promotional playoff game against Moroka Swallows tonight (Wednesday).

The young shot-stopper has been in good form during the playoffs with his distribution ability really catching the eye.

His performances have helped put Ezenkosi in a position where they know that three points will secure them promotion.  

Commenting on the mood in the camp a few hours before what is possibly one of the biggest games in the lives of many of the players, Naicker has said that the squad is calm.

“We are even more relaxed today. There is a lot of joking and laughing going on amongst the team even though this is one of the biggest games of our lives,” he told Sport24.

With Swallows already relegated many fans have wondered if that means that Cosmos will have an easy game but Naicker thinks the opposite.

“I don’t think Swallows will roll over. That will be an embarrassment for them. It will be a tough game.”

Cosmos are away to the Dube Birds on Wednesday, June 3 at the Dobsonville stadium.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
