And although there have also been reports that Barker's technical team have contractual issues, Barker maintains the PSL outfit is unified. 

"A lot has been said which is all untrue," says Barker.

"The club fully supports us, we fully support them. There is confidence from the club and we have confidence in them.

"It is in times like these that we remain together, more united and more support from up down and down up.

"There are no issues, it's just a question that we take our chances that we create and sort out one or two individual mistakes here and there.

"I believe we are not far from where we want to be but ja we are not in a comfortable position."

Tuks have lost a number of good players in the past few seasons such as Bongani Zungu, Mame Niang and most recently Buhle Mkhwanazi.

However, Barker still believes his squad can do the job.

"This group is good enough to pick themselves up and it's our responsibility that we do that," he says.

"We can't rely on bringing other players to help us with where we got ourselves in.

"We stil have eight games before the break. I believe over two months we will tell a story and come December hopefully we will be in a better position."
