The coach revealed the prospect of playing in the National
First Division - and the subsequent salary cuts that would go with it - is
enough incentive for the players to give their all without his input.
"There is no need to psyche as the motivation comes from
the fact that they are playing for their lives and their futures and that is
the reality," Rosslee told KickOff ahead
of Sunday's clash against Jomo Cosmos.
"People will judge them with time to come and I hope it
is for the positive and not the negative. That is the important thing and they
have to think about it.
The Dube Birds are currently joint top of the playoff group
after beating Black Leopards 2-0 earlier in the week, with Lidoda Duvha having
previously seen off Cosmos by the same scoreline.

Rosslee admitted they knew very little about their opponents going into the
"It is the unknown again against Cosmos and we have to
do our homework again and not only me but the players as well.”
Kick-off is at 15:00.
