Cape Town - Maritzburg United chairperson Farook Kadodia insists his team have a duty to the supporters of the club to fight until end in their battle against relegation but also asks referees to handle their games fairly.
The Team of Choice find themselves rooted to the bottom of the PSL standings having only collected 14 points from 21 games and are six points from safety with nine games still remaining.
Kadodia though took encouragement from Maritzburg's 3-2 defeat against Cape Town City in the Mother City on Saturday, a game the Team of Choice chairman feels the officials could have handled better.
Kadodia told the KickOff website: "We just want fair play, we want the referees not to kill us like they killed us on Saturday.
"The man in the middle came with a mission to kill us on Saturday, and unfortunately it wasn't in our control.
"For us as a team at this stage we'll fight till the end. We will make sure that we will fight, and we will fight our way out of this problem.
"We will make every effort, we have a big responsibility to the fans and for the rest of KZN, Maritzburg and the midlands and we will do everything in our hands."
Maritzburg's next game will be against Amazulu in a KwaZulu-Natal derby on Friday.
