Kaizer Chiefs striker Michelle Katsvairo struggles to put his finger on where his side's current woes stem from and admits the predicament they're in sometimes leaves him on the verge of tears.
Amakhosi currently sit in seventh position on the Absa Premiership table and have had to endure a run of six league games without a win that has seen them fall steadily in the standings.
Katsvairo refused to pin any blame on coach Steve Komphela, citing instead a lack of good fortune as a contributing factor to the team's present worries.
"He's a good coach and he has done nothing wrong... this is a bad patch and it will pass. All we need is some luck, we are doing almost everything right," he said. "It's bad luck or something, I just hope and pray that this bad patch will pass on quickly.
"We are working very hard. Sometimes I feel like crying when we are losing because we are working very hard on the pitch and sometimes we just lose games - it is difficult [to deal with].
"Losing is a very bad feeling, it touches me but that doesn't mean we should just stop working."
The 26-year-old Zimbabwean also expounded on his own personal difficulties, with a lack of goals foremost among his concerns.
"We've been working very hard trying to rectify our mistakes. As a striker I have not been scoring much so I've been working on that aspect," Katsvairo admittted.
"[Having] a goal drought, it is everywhere. Last year when I was at Chicken Inn that thing [a goal drought] happened to me again. I must keep working and it will come
"As a player you will always have pressure. Pressure from yourself because you set yourself goals. Pressure from the fans and also pressure from the coach because we need results.
"I think it is just a bad patch. Things will work out. This bad patch will pass."
Kaizer Chiefs are next in action against Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday.
