Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka has called on the team to forget about their unbeaten run this season and rather focus on each game as it comes.

Amakhosi currently sit pretty at the top of the Premiership standings, where their 18-match unbeaten start to the campaign has left them with a seemingly unassailable 15-point lead.

The Glamour Boys did, however, manage to concede a similar advantage last term as Mamelodi Sundowns rallied to lift the top-flight crown, but Maluleka is confident they can avoid the same fate this year.

"I think it is very important that we focus on ourselves because in that way we will not have a lot of distractions," said Maluleka.

"If we focus on our own game and try to play the best football and getting the results then I think everything should go well enough for us."

Maluleka went on to reveal he had clean forgotten Chiefs were even unbeaten in the league, but feels that is an approach the rest of the team should follow as they gear up for Wednesday's trip to Bloemfontein Celtic.

He said: "I had actually forgotten about that and I am being honest. To be honest, it hasn't been playing out a lot in my mind.

“The main focus in the camp is ourselves because we know that if we can play the best football on the day, no-one can really beat us.

"We are still doing the same thing that we were doing in the first part of the season, which is taking it one game at a time. So our target right now is just to take the three points from the Celtic game."
