Jomo Cosmos captain, Thato Lingwati says the team has learned from its mistakes and cannot afford to lose any more games in its quest to claim a play-off spot in the NFD.

Cosmos slipped down to 5th on the log after going down to Mbombela United last week, and the centre back is disappointed at the sudden loss of form.

“We played extremely well in that game but gave away silly goals. Obviously we must step up our game or forget about promotion this season.

“Hopefully we have learned from our mistakes and if indeed we are serious about getting promoted, this is the time to start winning again,” he said.

Lingwati has scored two goals in 18 league starts so far this season.

Meanwhile, the team has stepped up its build up to this weekend’s crucial NFD home tie against Ubuntu Cape Town FC. Both teams played to a 1-all draw in the first round last September.
