Thulani Hlatshwayo: Bidvest Wits players will take us out of trouble

After hoisting the Premiership trophy aloft last season, Hlatshwayo is not ready to fight relegation this campaign

Bidvest Wits captain Thulani Hlatshwayo wants his team to move one spot ahead of their current sitting, following their recent loss to Chippa United in midweek.

“I want us to by December have moved up from one position and out of the relegation zone. Personally, I’ve experienced that kind of fighting relegation before with Ajax Cape Town,” Hlatshwayo told the media.

The 29-year-old was in a relegation fight at the Urban Warriors, who eventually managed to avoid the drop, albeit narrowly in the 2012/13 season.

“When you are fighting relegation, you work so hard and all the teams above you have won their games, you end up still being stuck in there,” Hlatshwayo said.

The onus lies firmly at the feet of the Students who have to get themselves out of the quagmire and go the extra mile as they did during their maiden title campaign last season.

“We just need to soldier on and give more to what we gave before as players, because it’s us as players who put ourselves where we are and it’s us as players who will get ourselves out,” Hlatshwayo said.
