Struggling Jomo Cosmos might be flirting with relegation at the moment but head coach and owner Jomo Sono remains optimistic that they can turn the tables around in their last four matches in the GladAfrica Championship.
Cosmos have a mountain to climb as they linger in 15th spot on the GladAfrica Championship following their 0-0 draw against Uthongathi at the Wits Rugby Stadium on Sunday.
In their first game of the restart on Tuesday, Cosmos suffered a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) but Sono remains unfazed and takes positives from his side’s first two games since the resumption of football.
“We had two clear chances in the second half which we missed, overall I think it is a confidence booster to play a team like Uthongathi and play 0-0 and still miss two chances, it is a plus for us,” said Sono.
“Cosmos is playing well but we are not getting the results but now this draw will help us going to the next four games.
“We will carry through the momentum because in the first game we played so well [against TTM]. We were leading 1-0, 70th minute we hit the post twice while were leading 1-0 so you can see that, I mean this team is in contention for the league and the playoffs, so I am positive, we will survive,” concluded the Cosmos mentor.
Meanwhile in other results on Sunday, Royal Eagles, who are rooted at the bottom of the log standings lost 1-0 against TS Galaxy at the Johannesburg Stadium while Cape Umoya United hammered Free State Stars 3-1 at the Tuks Stadium.
