Johannesburg – Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has dismissed suggestions that Thursday’s Absa Premiership clash against Kaizer Chiefs at Orlando Stadium will decide the league title.
Leaders Chiefs and second-placed Sundowns are involved in a two-horse race for the league title and they go into this week’s hugely eagerly anticipated clash with only three points separating them.
The two teams meet having gone through inconsistent runs of results since football resumed in the bi-bubble with Chiefs managing only one win, two draws and two losses.
Football has not been too kind either for Mosimane and Sundowns as they have managed three draws, one win and one loss in their five matches.
“I don’t think Thursday is a title decider‚” said Mosimane after Sundowns’ hard fought 1-0 win over Golden Arrows on Monday.
“Sometimes the title can be won on the last match of the season. I have always told you guys that sometimes you value a point from a draw.
“We want to win against Chiefs to make everything correct but we might not even win against Chiefs. Mathematically the league will not be won on Thursday because this thing still has a heartbeat.
Mosimane, who has won four league titles with Sundowns, said it Is time to buckle up because there is going to be turbulence in the remaining four matches.
