Moroka Swallows midfielder Edzai Kasinauyo says that he is not entirely happy with the form that he has shown this season, but still intends to help his team win the Absa Cup and qualify for an African competition.
The Zimbabwean international admitted to the Swallows website that he has had his ups and downs with the Beautiful Birds this campaign.
"This was not my best season, I can't pinpoint the problem, but I just feel that I have not got the best out of myself," he said.
He continued: "I cannot really say that my performance has been so low, it's just that I have played better than what I have been doing this season."
Kasinauyo was looking to lift a trophy with the Dube Birds and he still has a chance to do that in the Absa Cup as the Birds are through to the semi-finals, where they meet up with Santos.
Part of the reason that the former Hellenic and Ajax Cape Town winger gives for being unhappy with his contribution this season is that he was not able to help the Birds win the coveted league trophy.
"Before every season starts, I always set myself goals that I want to achieve. One of them was to help Swallows win the Castle Premiership championship and our chances are not in our own hands any more."
The left-winger has been singled out in recent times for being extremely left-footed, something which the player admits to and is looking to work on.
"I have been working on my right leg and I have made progress by scoring two goals so far this season with my weak leg and there is no player who can take advantage of that because what I lack in my right shots, I make up with the way I twist and turn the opponents with the same leg," he said
Kasinauyo points out that the Swallows players are looking forward to play in a continental competition next season and therfore their league finish is very important to them.
"Some people think that since we are in the Absa Cup semi-finals, we are going to concentrate on that instead of the Castle Premiership. We are a professional team and every competition is very important to us.
"We want to play in Africa next season and that means every game that we play is very crucial to us," Kasinauyo warned the other teams.
"Winning away from your country is very hard but I think now is the right time for Swallows to be countered on the African continent and we are not looking back on that goal, starting with our last matches in the Castle Premiership,' said the midfielder.
The Birds have a tricky encounter on Sunday when they square up to the Jomo Cosmos in a Castle Premiership fixture and Kasinauyo and his team-mates will be out to gain revenge for the two defeats (once in the league and once in the Absa Cup final) that they have suffered at the hands of Jomo Sono's men.
