"I believe we are capable of clinching a play-off spot... we can finish second or third. But I am not happy about our away record... it's a big concern. We must rectify it if we want to achieve our goal," Ferreira told Sowetan yesterday.
"We still have to travel to leaders Stellenbosch, [third-placed] Ajax Cape Town and Mbombela [in fourth] away. If we can get six points there, then we are definitely finishing in the top three."
Ferreira also dismissed the notion that the KwaZulu-Natal-based club miss their top scorer Siyabonga Vilane, who joined top-flight side Baroka in January. Uthongathi have scored only three goals in four games since he left.
"We are doing well without him [Vilane]. He helped us a lot, but we still have players who can do the job. Diyo Sibisi and Francis Baloyi are our main guys now in terms of leading our attack," he said.
