Eric Tinkler says he has told his Maritzburg United charges to not leave their survival to the last game. This comes after the side bagged maximum points in a crucial relegation match against Black Leopards in Thohoyandou this past weekend.

Tinkler’s men still remain at the foot of the Absa Premiership table with 23 points from 28 matches, a single point from nearest rivals Chippa United in 15th spot.

Tinkler says they cannot completely rely on other sides hopefully stumbling in the last two matches.

Tinkler admits it is nerve wrecking to be in their position.
