Wits relegation prospect looms as losing streak continues
WITS coach Roger de Sa said his club was now "looking over their shoulder" at the prospect of potential relegation after their loss to Bloemfontein Celtic extended their winless streak to 12 matches at the weekend.
"Of course we are worried. We are looking over our shoulder and hoping to get that elusive win as quickly as possible," the beleaguered coach said in analysing the 3-1 home defeat.
The loss to Celtic means 13th-placed Wits are still to record a league victory this year and now face being caught by both Black Leopards and Santos, who are just below them in the standings.
Wits hit the woodwork three times in the match, but looked devoid of any confidence in attack, something De Sa admitted.
"We had a lot of chances. This has just been the way for us, we can't seem to do anything right. We created a lot of opportunities, but at the same time we gave away soft goals," he said.
"We could have got back in the game, but we just kept missing and missing. If you don't score, you don't win. That's it!"
De Sa conceded a confidence problem in his side: "It is something we work on every day, we just have to try and get over it."
Wits's last three games of the season are against Lamontville Golden Arrows, Black Leopards and Platinum Stars.
