Potchefstroom - Jomo Cosmos striker Charlton Mashumba believes that his team-mates have battled to stay away from the relegation zone for the most part of the 2015/16 Absa Premiership season due to their inexperience in the top flight football.

With exactly three games remaining before the current campaign reach its climax, Cosmos are lying 14th on the log and looks set to book a spot in next season’s campaign but with the University of Pretoria behind them, their journey is not yet complete.

The Zimbabwean international said that a majority in the Ezinkosi squad are rookies, in the Premier Soccer League, but they will get better as time goes on.

“I think our problem has been lack of experience in the top flight football.” Mashumba expressed
“We are inexperienced at this highest level and maybe ninety percent of our players are playing in the PSL for the first time.

“But it’s possible for us to turn things around and we don’t have to depend on us as strikers alone.
“It has to be a team work to achieve this goal and as a striker I can’t do it on my own.”

The 23-yearold forward was on target as Ezinkosi defeated AmaTuks 1-0, to keep their survival hopes alive, at the Olen Park stadium in the on Sunday.

Cosmos will face the wounded Ajax Cape Town at the Cape Town stadium on Wednesday.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
