SHEASHAM coach Lizwe Sweswe is confident of surviving relegation at the end of the season.

The Gweru side suffered a 0-2 loss at the hands of Dynamos in a league match at the Bata Stadium.

The defeat was the second in a row after they bowed out of the Chibuku Super Cup after being knocked out by Chicken Inn.

Sweswe had inspired The Construction Boys to a five-game unbeaten run in the league before the loss to Dynamos.

The highly-rated coach joined the club after John Nyikadzino was sacked.

The Glamour Boys became the first team to score against Sheasham at Bata.

“What is important is the target,” said Sweswe. 

“The boys want to stay in the Premier League.

“Obviously, we will lose one or two games but what is important is to go back and still come back stronger and see how we can pick up some points and see what happens. 

“I am confident that we will survive relegation and that’s why I came here even when we were number two from the bottom.”

Sweswe said he will work with his squad to be clinical in front of goal and improve their defensive lines after failing to capitalise on their chances against Dynamos.

“Well done to the boys,” he said. 

“It’s still work in progress and we should have buried some chances before we were punished but it’s still work in progress. 

“So, we will go back to training and work on some things.”

Sheasham are in 15th place with 20 points.
