The dribbling wizard has struggled to feature in Vladimir Vermezovic’s team sheet since the start of the season.

The former Black Leopards midfielder insisted on that with the current situation the team is going through, it is important to stay focused and “fight for the team.”

“We lost two very important games and when things are like this, the guys that are not playing must be ready to expect a call from the coach; it is a normal thing,” said the 28-year-old to the clubs website.

“But I have been in the team for a few seasons now and I am sure we will come back. It is only a matter of time. We will fight for a victory on Sunday (October 5) and from then on we will try to build on that result. Right now we need a good result so we can build on that.”

“Whoever plays on Sunday will approach that game with respect because we cannot afford to get nothing less than a victory. Polokwane City will be more organised now because they know we beat them before, but we will be ready.

“If I am in the team, of course I will fight for the shirt and make sure things go well for us.”

Bucs and City will square up at Orlando Stadium in the last 16 of the Telkom Knockout Cup.

The match starts at 15:00.
