Mxolisi Kunene has challenged Maritzburg United's senior players to step up and help the club survive relegation. 
 
The former Baroka FC midfielder says in their next four games the senior players have to show the country what they are made of by saving the club from playing in the National First Division. 
 
"We're in a tough situation, a very tough one. We are fighting for our lives and the whole Maritzburg community. The senior players need to step up and fight for this team, we need to take responsibility of our actions," Kunene said. 
 
Maritzburg will host Orlando Pirates on Wednesday, then travel to Limpopo to face Black Leopards. They then host SuperSport United and close the season at Baroka. Kunene believes three wins and a draw can save them. 
 
"Three wins and a draw in our last matches can do it for us, we are not thinking of [relegation] playoffs, we must fight for survival and as long as we believe, we can achieve that." 
 
Kunene also said the chairman Farook Kadioda is always encouraging them and he has not lost hope in them as players. When asked if there is any incentive offered to the players, he did not want to comment. 
 
"The chairman is still positive and every day he motivates us to work extra hard. We won't let him and the club down. I really can't comment on whether we have been offered something or not."
