New marumo Gallants head coach Dan Malesela says, it is up to the club's player if they are to survive relegation from the Dstv premiership this season.
Gallants are bottom of the league standings and without a win after nine games.
Sebastien Migne was relieved of his duties before Mpho Maleka took over in a care-taker capacity.
Now Malesela, who last coaches Chippa united, has a task on his hands to improve the club's form.
Malesela told Kickoff: "one just has to say, how can we be smarter, how can we do things to benefit us in the long run.
"It's not completely up to me, it's completely up to the players to say, "I'm raising my hand", I want to play. If there's competition among the players then it would help us succeed.'
Malesela added, "they are quite and exciting side to watch you know, the only thing is they haven't been scoring and those are some of the things one need to work on.
The first thing is to get the club away from where it is, and slowly build what would really become a good philosophy at the club.
"It would give the players some confidence you know if we do well in our next match. We really don't belong at the bottom.
"We will try as much as possible to play football. When you take shortcut in this game you never really survive. We have to see if we can Play football that is purposeful and meaningful, football that will really give us results.
