Cape Town - University of Pretoria skipper Ronald Ketjijere admits his side cannot afford to panic following a disappointing start to the season.

AmaTuks are languishing near the foot of the Premiership table after picking up just three points from their opening four fixtures of the campaign.

Their run of form is certainly a major cause for concern, especially as they just narrowly avoided a relegation scrap last term.

"We can't panic now. If we panic now then we are gone," Ketjijere told Sowetan Live.

"We know that it's a very bad start to the season. We have to improve and start winning matches otherwise it's going to be a long season again.

"We have to keep clean sheets to win games."

Sammy Troughton's men started the season with a 1-0 defeat to Golden Arrows, but bounced back in emphatic fashion as they cruised to a 3-0 victory over Polokwane City.

However, they have since failed to find the back of the net, slumping to a 4-0 loss against Chippa United before 1-0 defeat at home to Bidvest Wits at the weekend.
