Jomo Cosmos owner and coach Jomo Sono says there is nothing to worry about regarding their current GladAfrica Championship log position.
Cosmos moved two places up from the bottom of the log to 14th position following their 0-0 draw against rivals Swallows FC at the Giyani Stadium on Sunday.
The draw was Cosmos’ fourth of the season with only one win and three defeats in 8 matches.
Sono suggests that it is illogical to start raising fears of relegation after only 8 games.
“I have been in this position before and I won the league, the whole of the first round I was number 15 but when we re-opened after the Christmas break, I went on to win the league,” Sono argues.
“It is still early, the team at the bottom can still win the league, so it is still too early you are talking eight games here.
“For God’s sake it is still eight games but yes we need to pick up points, but it’s only eight games. You can see the way we played (against Swallows) that we were a different team completely.”
Sono has also confirmed that the match against Swallows was not their last in Giyani and that a new deal is set to be reached soon.
“Yes, definitely, we are going to play a few more games here so there are a few things we are sorting out with the council, but this is home and we are lucky here.”
Cosmos have collected 4 out of a possible 9 since they started playing at the Giyani Stadium on September 29.
They lost 1-0 to Richards Bay, won 1-0 against Cape Umoya United and the 0-0 draw against Swallows.
