'PSL title down to the wire'

 PSL Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns caretaker coach Ian Gorowa is adamant that his side's meeting with Ajax Cape Town will not decide who wins the Premier Soccer League title.

For the fourth time in the space of six weeks, the top two in the Absa Premiership will clash when The Brazilians host Foppe de Haan's side at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday night.

But even though his side has an opportunity to return to the top of the table for the first time since January, Gorowa believes nothing will be decided until the very end of the season.

"I wouldn't say it's a title decider but it is a very important game because if we win then we will be top of the league," Gorowa said ahead of the clash.

"We need to win every game that is available at the moment because it is so tight at the top but we just need to find some consistency.

"But this is not a game which is going to decide - it gives us an opportunity. If this was the last game of the season then we would call it the decider but we still have four more to play after this one."

Sundowns have not played a competitive match since their defeat to Orlando Pirates in the Nedbank Cup on March 12. While many of their star-studded squad were busy with international fixtures, the rest of the players have kept up their fitness levels by playing friendlies behind closed doors.

Besides long-term injuries to Matthew Booth, Lebohnag Mokeona and Lionel Mtizwa, Gorowa now has a strong squad to choose from and he admitted they are now in a great position.

"The break has given us an opportunity to assess our injured players and get some of them back," he added.

"It was a shame because we had won four games in a row but the most important thing is to keep the boys sharp, which we tried to do by organising friendly matches. That has kept the competitive edge in the squad."
