Cape Town - University of Pretoria striker Atusaye Nyondo admits the club are in a dire position, but insists they will give everything to avoid relegation from the Premiership.

AmaTuks fears of the drop were compounded after Tshwane rivals Mamelodi Sundowns secured the Premiership title at the Tuks stadium, comfortably beating the home side 3-0.

With two games remaining, against Polokwane City and Golden Arrows, it looks increasingly likely that Shaun Bartlett's side will be involved in the relegation play-offs as Jomo Cosmos, in 14th place, hold a four-point lead over Tuks.
