Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Hlompho Kekana will take nothing for granted when his club plays against Chippa United in Pretoria on Wednesday.

Sundowns are contributing to what is a thrilling Premiership title chase and are now just eight points behind Kaizer Chiefs. The Brazilians also have a game in hand and if all goes according to script on Wednesday night, that gap can be cut to five with seven matches remaining in the season.
Chiefs have looked vulnerable throughout 2015 but even if they do slip up, Sundowns have absolutely no margin for error at this juncture, which is why every match matters, especially against struggling opponents like Chippa.
"When the league enters its second round one can't predict what's going to happen next," Kekana told Backpage TXT.
Since Ernst Middendorp took over at the helm, Chippa United have failed to record a victory. Suddenly the Chilli Boys have become strong relegation candidates again and Kekana thinks that is what makes them such dangerous opponents this week.
"Every point is very important and we will have to be very cautious against a Chippa side who haven't won a match in 2015. They have nothing to lose," said Kekana.
"At the same time it is a very important game for us as we aim to keep in touch with Chiefs."
That Sundowns were in a similar position to this last season has been well documented and Kekana believes that has reignited the belief within the squad, after what was a slow start to the current campaign.
"I think belief has crept in, when you win games your confidence starts to rise again. We believe we can do it and we can continue winning. We are all pulling in the same direction," added Kekana.
