Mphela: We have lost out
Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns striker Katlego Mphela has admitted that SuperSport have the PSL title all but wrapped up.
The Brazilians came back to draw their postponed game with Moroka Swallows 3-3 on Friday night after trailing by two goals when the lights went out at the Super Stadium on Wednesday.
While it was a valiant effort from the Chloorkop outfit, 'Killer' feels it wasn't enough to put the league leaders on the back foot.
"I don't think we should blame anyone for our failure to win the championship but ourselves," he told Sowetan.
"It was crucial for us to beat Moroka Swallows but we didn't. We conceded a goal which killed us off.
"Honestly, I don't see us winning the league now and SuperSport are the deserving winners. There's no shame losing out to them since they have been playing well and are deserving winners."
Downs are four points adrift of Matsatsantsa, with two fixtures remaining in the season. If SuperSport win their next game against Wits, they will be guaranteed a third successive championship.
