Pietermaritzburg - Following their defeat to a struggling Moroka Swallows outfit last weekend, Maritzburg United defender Abel Mabaso said the KZN- based team did not capitalise on their goal scoring chances.

Swallows kept their Absa Premiership survival hopes alive when they beat the Team of Choice 1-0 at Dobsonville Stadium last Friday, courtesy of Felix Obada strike.

The 23-year-old right-back hinted that his team-mates will pull themselves together and aim to grab the maximum six points from their remaining two games to secure their Top 8 finish at the end of the season.

“We didn’t use our chances, especially in the second half,” said Mabaso.

“We got a couple of chances and things would have been different if we took advantage of them.

“Credit must go to the Swallows team; they deserved to win against us on the day.

“For us we just have to keep on going and we have only two games left.

“And we need to work hard and apply ourselves properly because we still want to finish inside the Top 8.”

United will host Pirates at Harry Gwala Stadium on Wednesday before completing their 2014/15 season away to AmaZulu on Saturday.
