Thidiela also tells snl24.com/kickoff that they are doing everything they can to lift the team off the bottom of the log and have no intention of dismissing coach Boebie Solomons.
“Do you think chasing the coach away at this time is going bring solutions? I don't think so. We are trying hard, but things are not going our way.
“However, we are not ready to give up. We still have 10 games to go. We are two points behind Cosmos and four points behind Thanda Royal Zulu.
“We are not going to rely on other teams to do us a favour and will continue fighting hard to save the team from relegation.”
Leopards’ loss to AmaZulu at the weekend has apparently also eased the pressure on Usuthu’s coach Clive Barker.
Reports from Durban have it that the veteran former Bafana Bafana coach has been given a respite of two more games to improve the fortunes of the Pat Sokhela owned outfit.
AmaZulu will face relegation candidates Thanda Royal Zulu in Durban on Wednesday and if Barker can get a good result against Amabhubesi, he could be back in the driving seat.
