Civo United Coach Charles Manda says the Civil Servants are not prepared to wave the white flag in their battle to stay in the flagship TNM Super League.
Manda said on Wednesday after their 1-0 painful defeat to one of the title contenders Blue Eagles FC who have risen to the top of the 16 member log table with 51 points with four games to go.
Civo United need to preserve their top flight status as they have been in the elite league since the club was established in 1987.
Speaking in a post-match interview on Wednesday, Manda urged the soccer fraternity not to completely send them to the death bed.
“Anything can happen in football and we are not giving up. We still have five games to go and we will fight until the last drop” said Manda formerly Assistant Coach for Highlanders of Swaziland.
Manda, who took over from Millias Pofera Jegwe following a poor run of form, has struggled to get positive results since he joined the tax sponsored side.
They were frustrated further by Blue Eagles on Wednesday in a game they needed to win at all cost to keep their survival chances alive.
They lost 1-0 courtesy of a second half loan strike from Maxwell Salambula.
Civo are currently on position 15 with 25 points from 21 games.
They are battling for survival alongside 14th placed Karonga United who have 25 points, Wizards FC who have 26 points and Dwangwa United who have 27 points.
