Cape Town - Moroka Swallows head coach Craig Rosslee admitted it is not difficult to motivate his players to succeed in the PSL promotion-relegation playoffs.

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.

However, ahead of their next assignment against Cosmos, Rosslee admitted they knew very little about their opponents going into the match.

"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.
