HARARE City midfielder, Emmanuel Ziocha, is optimistic they can still turn around their fortunes and move away from the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League relegation zone.
The club have been let down by their failure to convert chances.
They have registered two draws and three losses in their last five matches.
Their last win came in July at home against Triangle United.
Harare City are currently in 15th place with 24 points, and have all to fight for in their last six games of the season.
The roping in of former Black Rhinos coach, Herbert Maruwa, to the technical team, might also give them the edge to intensify their battle for survival.
Ziocha said they have to grind results in their remaining six games to survive the chop.
Speaking to H-Metro, Ziocha said he believes two consecutive wins could spur their survival chances.
“We have to collect maximum points in the remaining matches. “Every game is crucial for us now and we need to grind results by putting our bodies on the line,” said Ziocha.
“Our coaches have been very instrumental and supportive of us as we approach the final games. “They have instructed us not to look at where we are on the league table at the moment, but to concentrate more on grinding results.
“We have to play our normal game with efficiency and utilise the chances that we create.
“It has been difficult in the past games as we have put up solid performances, but failed to win games.”
“As a team, we are not going to lose hope as we can pass the hurdle in front of us.
“In our next game against Rhinos, we understand they are a good side and are difficult to play at home.
“But, we will go there and focus on our game and try to cause problems for them,” he said.
