Edwin Gyimah admits Orlando Pirates "didn't come to the party" against Chippa United, and feels the team need to have a frank discussion of where they are going wrong of late.
Pirates lost 2-0 at United on Wednesday, extending their winless run to four games.
"They played very well," Gyimah said. "I think they are very good, we have to respect the opposition.
"I think, I don't know what to say... I think our team spirit is going down. We need to lift our spirit. It can't only be one or two people raising their game in the game, we have to all come out as a team.
"We have to be fair, we didn't play well. We didn't come to the party because those guys were enjoying themselves. There wasn't any pressure, we were not pressing them. We have to be aggressive all the time.
"Even in Europe these big teams, the superstars, they press, they fight very hard. I think in each and every game, even if it is a striker, midfielder, defender, we need to press and work very hard."
The Ghanaian enforcer added: "We are not happy. It is four games now without a win. We just have to sit down and talk to ourselves very well to see where the problem is."
The Sea Robbers are seventh on the Absa Premiership table and will end their league campaign against top-eight hopefuls SuperSport United at home on May 21.
Eric Tinkler's men will first contest a Nedbank Cup semi-final with Free State Stars at Goble Park on Saturday.
