Kaizer Chiefs defender Lorenzo Gordinho says the team must keep up their standards for the club's fans in their final three games of the season.
Amakhosi are destined to end a second campaign under coach Steve Komphela without silverware, but can still secure a ticket to CAF competition next term by finishing in the top three.
Chiefs visit Polokwane City tonight at Peter Mokaba Stadium (18h00) before concluding 2016/17 against Platinum Stars and Bidvest Wits (on May 17 and 27).
"Without the trophies, we are still one of the biggest teams in the country," said Gordinho.
"We can't let ourselves just slip and fall. We have to keep going and keep up our performances for the fans. They still wanna see good football and we gonna have to give them a brand they they been enjoying throughout the season. It doesn't mean we not gonna win the title, that we must just give up. We are still fighting for a place to get into one of the African tournaments."
The Glamour Boys could decide the destination of the title when they tackle log leaders Wits at FNB Stadium. The Students are two points clear of champions Mamelodi Sundowns with two games left apiece.
Gordinho added: "We have to give it a full go, that's a big one against Wits, we have a personal rivalry with the guys. I just think we have to win for the supporters now. It's about playing for the pride of the club, the pride of the fans, and for ourselves to get our confidence back and get back to winning ways. Any professional wants to win every game so I think it's important to win the last three."
