Cape Town - Polokwane City captain Jabulani Maluleke has urged his team to keep their cool in the battle for relegation, saying there is no need to panic just yet.

Rise and Shine are fourth from bottom in the Premiership standings, tied on 27 points with SuperSport United and Golden Arrows.

However, Maluleke believes Bernard Molekwa's side must just keep calm because they have been playing good football and results will soon come their way.

"We just have to keep our cool and not panic because we are not playing badly," the veteran midfielder told Vodacom Soccer.

"Our performance has not been that bad apart from not converting the chances that we have created. But we just have to be cool and play our normal game.

"For sure, we do have that quality to fight and win the remaining games which will help us win the battle."

The 36-year-old has featured in 23 of the club's 24 league matches this season, and said his passion for the game has kept him going.

"I think I love what I am doing and work hard to be in good conditions to compete," added Maluleka.

"I also try to learn from each experience and those that I play with."
