Manoti said they were hoping that the players they had signed would help change their fortunes in the league.

“These players have joined us because we want a balance between the junior and the senior players. We want to have those guys who have seen it in the Premiership to help the youngsters.

The coming in of youngsters is going to help us in that they would want to prove themselves and make their names, so that might help in stabilising us.

“We can survive relegation because if you notice, most teams are separated by a point or two in the log table.

“The second round of the league is going to be very tough because of that,” he said.
