Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane believes all is not lost in the PSL title race, despite the Brazilians not picking up a victory in their last five league games.

The Chloorkop side are up against Tshwane rivals SuperSport United in a clash that can change the shape of the Premiership table for either team.

"Remember, at one stage we were 11 points behind with eight games to go in the 2013/14 season. You know what happened (Sundowns went on to win the league)," said Mosimane as quoted by KickOff website.

"It’s (Sundowns' current situation) is not as bad as (it seems). I am not saying it's going to go like that, but I am looking at the positive.”

Sundowns still have three games in hand while SuperSport have a match to spare as both teams occupy fifth and fourth place respectively.

Mosimane is confident that if his charges can win Matsatsantsa then their title race will be revitalised just in time for the last few games of the season.

"This team is still good to enough to put everybody on one half. This team will be playing again on Thursday, maybe we can win one game because if we win one game, everything turns around,” the ‘Downs head coach said.

"We haven't had a win in five [league] games but we are still in the right place. Okay, not the best (position) but still okay; hopefully, we get a win on Thursday.

Kick off is at 18:00.
