"We have been in a bubble for some weeks which is a really expensive exercise. We have been affected and infected as a club because we are in the same country as all other teams.

"We are in a bubble currently and one has to thank the management for their vision in trying to accommodate and help the situation," he explains.

The Bucs still have five games to play before the Christmas break against TS Galaxy, Swallows, Mamelodi Sundowns, Marumo Gallants and AmaZulu.

It is games that they will be hoping their performance measures up to the results after just two wins in the last 10 games.

"It is important that we must become a team that plays good football but with points. If you don’t score goals in the game of football you are not going to win matches. There are teams that are not even playing half of what we are doing but they are getting the points.

"I’m happy that some of the players are coming back from injuries and we are going to be stronger than we were before. We must trust the process. This is the football that these players should be playing, and the only missing part is just the ball in the net. We cannot continue dominating games without scoring," says Ncikazi.
