Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates captain Lucky Lekgwathi has not given up on
winning the PSL title just yet, despite the ever-growing gap at the top
of the table.
According to the Football411 website, the Buccaneers are nine points adrift of league leaders Kaizer
Chiefs and three points behind second-placed Platinum Stars, with a game
in hand over both.
The Bucs have been on continental duty in the CAF Champions
League and have progressed to the second round of the competition. They
rekindled their earlier season form in the first leg of their second
round tie against TP Mazembe with a 3-1 win over the Congolese side.
Lekgwathi now believes it is vital to focus their efforts on the
league in an attempt to close the gap on the number one spot, starting
with a win over Bidvest Wits on Saturday.
"Beating Mazembe feels good especially because not many people
expected us to come out of that game alive but we proved that we cannot
be underestimated," he told MTNFootball.
"Our focus now goes back to the league - we have to beat Wits and
there is no point in us continuing celebrating our win against Mazembe
when we have another tough match to play.
"The league title is something we want to win desperately and I'm actually glad that we go to Wits highly motivated.
"They will find it tough to play against us that is for sure -
our supporters are again behind us and Mbombela is our second home. We
go there determined to get full points and nothing else."
