Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens remains calm in the wake of Saturday's 1-0 loss to mid-table Maritzburg United.

The Brazilians, who trail PSL leaders Orlando Pirates by two points with four games left in the season, were undone by Cuthbert Malajila's 80th minute decider at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

And although it was Downs' second successive defeat following a 2-1 reverse to Platinum Stars last week, Neeskens insists the title race is far from over.

"If we were playing badly and not creating chances then I would be worried," Neeskens told the Sowetan. "But our problem has not been playing badly, but just not scoring.

"There are four games to go and anything can happen. I've said before that no team will win all of their last four matches. We just have to concentrate on winning our own games and not thinking about what the other teams are doing," concluded the Dutchman.
