Cape Town - Retired Bafana Bafana full-back David Nyathi is confident Kaizer Chiefs will hang on to their lead and win the Premiership title this season.
Read: Baxter proud of Amakhosi
Amakhosi began 2015 undefeated in the league and looked unbeatable, but have suffered a severe dip in form since the turn of the year.
The Soweto club has lost four of its last five games in all competitions, including being knocked out of both the CAF Champions League by Raja Casablanca and the Nedbank Cup by Black Leopards.
Despite only winning two of six Premiership games this year, Chiefs still hold an eight-point lead over second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns.
Nyathi is confident Chiefs have enough about themselves to still be top come the end of the season in May.
"I still believe Chiefs have a healthy lead," he told KickOff.
"Obviously they are showing signs of inconsistencies here and there, which is normal in a long season.
"But I still think they have a healthy lead. They got two wake up calls now, so we'll see."
It has a similar flavour to last season when Sundowns overturned a similar deficit to win the title.
The former Chiefs and Orlando Pirates defender believes they have a good enough team to challenge again this term, but thinks the Amakhosi will hold on if they stay focused.
"Sundowns stole it from the back last season, and they can still do it," Nyathi said.
"They have the team to win it, but I think Chiefs have a healthy lead.
"If they can just maintain their focus, I think they should be able to do it."
