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.

"At the moment it looks impossible for us to avoid relegation, but at the same time we don't want to go to the play-offs because that's a very difficult position to be in," he told Goal website.

"We have to make sure we win our two remaining games and not worry about other teams as they also have their own games to worry about. It won't be easy by it's doable."

The Malawian forward has struggled for form this season in a disappointing campaign, scoring only two goals in 22 appearances.
