Black Leopards coach Sheppard "Msindisi" Murape has made it clear that the people of Limpopo will not miss Absa Premiership action because the team will not be relegated.
Murape's confidence has been fortified by his side's recent victories over Bidvest Wits and Thanda Royal Zulu.
"We will not rest on our laurels until we move out of the relegation zone. We do not want to negotiate our Absa Premiership status through the playoffs.
"We'd rather die on the field of play rather than sell our status. Our players did not go on holiday because the situation in which we find ourselves needs hard training and commitment.
"The players have to fight to move out of the relegation zone as they contributed towards this kind of situation," Murape said.
Leopards turned the tables in against Wits to register their first league victory of the year, after languishing at the bottom of the log without collecting any point for almost three months.
Their two victories have put them level with fellow strugglers Jomo Cosmos on 22 points from 27 outings.
Leopards also have to face Lamontville Golden Arrows on Saturday.
They will also take on fellow relegation candidates Cosmos before their last league match against Kaizer Chiefs on May 17.
