Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala says the team must win their remaining three games and then reflect on what they must do to come back stronger next term.
Chiefs are set to end a second season without silverware under coach Steve Komphela - much to Tshabalala's disappointment.
"It's not a great feeling," said 'Shabba'. "Certainly it's part of the journey, there are lessons to be learnt from a painful situation.
"At the moment we just have to focus on the last three games and make sure we win the last three games, and reflect on where we went wrong and what we did right, and prepare and come back much stronger, much wiser and much more deadlier."
Amakhosi, in fifth place on the table with 47 points from 27 games, will tackle Polokwane City at Peter Mokaba Stadium tomorrow (18h00) before concluding their campaign with matches against Platinum Stars (May 17) and log leaders Bidvest Wits (May 27).
Tshabalala expects a contest from sixth-placed Rise and Shine.
"It's a tough game. Polokwane City, they have a quality side, they are a ball-playing team. They want to be on the ball all the time, the same as us wanting to be on the ball all the time.
"I think we need to be more clinical, more ruthless in front of the goal and just convert our chances and make sure we don't concede."
