Gilbert Mapemba says that every match for the rest of the Absa Premiership season is critical to the Birds' aims.
In an interesting league table, Moroka Swallows are only two points away from the relegation zone and only three from the top eight.
The Birds' right-back says the flock is putting in the work to change the situation they find themselves in when they lock horns with the University of Pretoria at the Tuks Stadium on Wednesday night (kick-off 7.30pm).
"Everyone is working hard,"Mapemba told morokaswallows.co.za. "We've been trying to change our approach from last year, so that we can collect maximum points in each game.
"Every point matters at the moment and we need these points to move up the log."
The 27-year-old was recently recalled into the Zimbabwe national set-up, after suspension for his involvement in the Asigate scandal.
He expressed his delight at the opportunity to proudly put on the Warriors shirt once again.
"I'm happy that [Asiagate] is all behind me now. Everyone wants to play for his national team, so it was good to called up again and indeed a great honour," he said.
His return was a winning one, after the Warriors came back from a goal down to beat Botswana 2-1 in a friendly - which served as preparations for the remaining 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
Zim are third in Group G behind Egypt, Guinea and ahead of Mozambique only on goal difference.
"We are working hard and are serious about the current qualifiers and make it to the next AFCON and World Cup," he added.
"The fans must just keep on supporting us. Whoever is in charge must be supported.
"Did you think the final of the AFCON was going to be between Nigeria and Burkina Faso? Anything is possible in football, so we are capable of pulling through and make it to any stage."
