However, the 32-year-old has conceded that their problems in front of goal are the reason why, after four Premiership fixtures, Amakhosi have picked up just three points.

"We've been playing some fantastic football lately, but we have failed to complement it with wins. This is just a minor slump, we've been here before and I believe there isn't much that we need to do to fix in our game," Katsande was quoted as saying by the Daily Sun.

"We've conceded soft goals and are happy to have had our first clean sheet against Maritzburg (in Friday's 0-0 draw). Now our focus is to ensure we work on our execution in front of goal. Coach Giovanni Solinas has also said it, we need to be clinical in front of goal."

Nevertheless, Katsande has not given up on challenging for silverware this season.

"All is not lost. We know there is pressure but we also know what is expected of us. We need to dust ourselves off and do what is necessary," he said.

"The positives that we are taking from these matches is that we are managing to create chances, our only problem is that we haven't utilised them. It would have been a mountain to climb if we were not creating those chances. All we need to do now is to focus on our next match and try to win it."

Amakhosi will face SuperSport United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday in the first leg of their MTN8 semi-final.

Kick-off set for 15:00.
