Black Leopards' coach Sheppard Murape reckons poor finishing could lead to their demotion from the lucrative Absa Premiership this season.

A concern Murape said he will spend much focus on this department at training ahead of their crunch league match against equally wasteful fellow relegation candidates Jomo Cosmos on Wednesday.

Lidoda Duvha visit Ezenkosi at James Motlatsi Stadium in Orkney, North West, in a make or break clash. Kickoff is at 7.30pm.

Murape is justified in been worried about his side's finishing after his forwards wasted a number of goal scoring opportunities against Lamontville Golden Arrows on Saturday.

The match, which ended in a goalless stalemate, was played at the boiling Thohoyandou Stadium.

"There is no way we can move out of the relegation zone unless our players start to communicate during the game, especially upfront. I can't hide my disappointment in the way we failed to convert our chances," Murape said.
