Players like goalkeeper Greg Etafia, defenders Larry Cohen, Rudi Isaacs and Shere Lekgothoane, and wingers Dikgang Mabalane and Felix Obada, to mention a few, have their contracts coming to an end.

A source at the club told Sport24 that most of the players are not ready to go down with the team.

He said the management will be having a meeting with most of the players to see if they wish to remain with the team, and help it return to the ABSA Premiership next season.

"It's a very tricky situation for both the players and the club management,” the source told said.

“The team is expected to lose a lot of players right now.”
