Cape Town - Moroka Swallows captain Lefa Tsutsulupa says the onus is now on his players to counter the adversity which they face in the Premiership, starting with the Soweto derby against Kaizer Chiefs.

While it is true that there is a significant gulf between the two teams this season, there will be a considerable amount at stake for both clubs ahead of this fixture, primarily because teams failed to collect points in their last matches.

"I think it is all up to individuals now to stand up and take the initiative of leading and giving their best performance," Tsutsulupa told Supersport TV.

"We have not been getting the desired results and everyone is aware of that, but what is important is that we act and keep fighting till the end," added the Swallows veteran, who is edging ever closer to retirement.

"I think it’s not going to be an easy match, but the common factor between us is that we are both coming from defeats, so we will be looking forward to a win."

Tsutsulupa still believes his team has the capacity to compete against that best in the country, suggesting there was no better occasion to do this than in a match against their Soweto rivals.

"Anything is possible if we commit and work as a unit, we shall get the results we desire.

"At the end of the day if we want to win and move from that position we must make sure that we collect the points required in each and every game," added Tsutsulupa.

The clash will be played at the Dobsonville Stadium kick-off at 19:30.
