Mosimane: Title race is not over

Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane is remaining calm for the Premiership title race despite losing to Bidvest Wits on Monday.

Masandawana suffered a 1-0 defeat to Gavin Hunt's charges at the Bidvest Stadium, with midfielder Ben Motshwari scoring the only goal of the heated encounter - as the Students moved a point ahead in the title race.

And with five games remaining Mosimane insists the loss was not a defining moment, citing the pressure of leading the Premiership will weigh on their domestic rivals minds and the strength of opposition Hunt's men still need to overcome.

The Brazilians will be looking to move back to the summit on Thursday when they face out of sorts Platinum Stars, while Wits take on a resurgent Orlando Pirates side, who are looking to secure their top-eight position.

"There's pressure on everybody. It was in Cape Town City's hands, then it was in our hands and now it's in Wits' hands," he told the Sowetan.

"We have to try to win against Platinum Stars and keep going. Football is not about who has the easier run. Maybe it will go to the end.

"I've got Highlands Park and they've got Chiefs. So we'll see, don't get emotional."
