Cape Town - University of Pretoria coach Shaun Bartlett has reiterated his commitment to the Premiership club amid the threat of relegation.

AmaTuks are second from bottom in the league standings with five wins, six draws and 16 losses to sit on 21 points.

They are only one point ahead of basement club Maritzburg United with three games left in the season, will face league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday.

"I signed a three-and-a-half-year deal when I joined the team earlier this year, so for me the intention has always been to remain with the side no matter what," Bartlett told KickOff.

"My mandate is to implement certain things in the youth structures that will help to take this club forward and that extends beyond this season.

"Obviously my immediate priority is to keep the club in the top flight and that is what we are working towards for the next few weeks."
