Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces shot-stopper Jackson Mabokgwane has rallied his troops to concentrate until the final whistle in order to snap their losing streak.

AmaZayoni have been hit by a poor run of form, having recorded three consecutive losses in all competitions.

Despite the brief dip in form, Aces remain among the leading pack in the Premiership on 15 points, with four wins, three draws and two losses.

Mabokgwane wants his team to turn the corner against Jomo Cosmos at the Mbombela Stadium on Tuesday.

"We have been playing well in patches, you could see that in the two losses against Chiefs," Mabokgwane told The Sowetan.

"It was the same against Chippa, we just lost concentration in the second-half.

"We either start the game well and then let it slip in the second half, or we start slowly, let teams get in front and only then start playing like we can.

"We need to start putting together a more complete performance from the beginning of the match to the end.

"It is something we are aware of though, putting two good halves together.

"If we can bring in that consistency, we know that we can play well enough to finish in the top four or five this season.

"We have the players to do it and coach to get there."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
