Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs right-back Ramahlwe Mphahlele insists it is just a matter of time before the team returns to winning ways.
Amakhosi's winless streak in the Premiership extended to seven games when they played out to a goalless draw with Bloemfontein Celtic at FNB Stadium on Wednesday night.
"The win has been eluding us for a long time now if you consider that we last won a game on October 15 when we beat Ajax (Cape Town). Yes, the pressure is mounting on us, but I'm fully optimistic that soon we will be turning a corner," Mphahlele told Vodacom Soccer.
"It's just our finishing upfront that needs to be sorted out, because we create a lot of scoring chances. In fact, we need just that win in our two remaining matches before the Christmas break. The win that will be a morale booster for us, and restore hope to our supporters."
The sixth-placed Glamour Boys are left with two crucial matches against Polokwane City and Golden Arrows before the Christmas break. They take on high-flying Rise and Shine at FNB Stadium on Sunday.
"Yes, the two games we are left with are the tough ones. Both Polokwane and Arrows have been doing well so far this season and their log positions don't lie," added the 26-year-old, who has been gradually establishing himself at Chiefs since joining from Mamelodi Sundowns during the off-season.
"But we badly need points in these two remaining matches, and a win is a must in one if not two of these matches. Our focus now is on our Sunday's game against Polokwane, from whom we expect a tough encounter, but prepared to go all out for vital points on the day."
