Cape Town – Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela insist that Amakhosi have not once put their title hopes on hold.

This comes after their hard fought win against SuperSport United at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday night.

The win was the last of Amakhosi’s three home away from home games in Cape Town.

Chiefs go into the Polokwane City fixture high on confidence, after recording their fifth straight win, which includes last week’s CAF Champions League win over Volcan Club de Moroni.

The Amakhosi coach remains optimistic that his side is still on course to defend the Absa Premiership title.

“Our title chase has never been put off. Anything can happen to log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns,” said Komphela on Kaizer Chiefs website.

“We have been there before, ask Stuart Baxter - at some point we were leading with twelve points and Sundowns overtook us to clinch the title.

“The power to stay on top requires a lot of mental strength. A slight hiccup can derail anybody’s efforts.”
