Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Doctor Khumalo insist they will only celebrate the PSL title once it is in the bag.

READ: Chiefs had a plan in place

The Amakhosi legend took charge of proceedings during a hard-fought victory against a stubborn AmaZulu. It finished 1-0, courtesy of a clinical finish by Man-of-the-Match Bernard Parker.

“We didn’t have a chance to watch AmaZulu’s match against Free State Stars, but the players really came together, fighting hard for the three points," Khumalo told Chiefs' official website.

The league race is far from over according to Khumalo, this is despite the chasing pack dropping points in their midweek matches.

“We planned for this match before we left Morocco. The next game is always the most important. We can’t get too far ahead of ourselves,” added Khumalo.

“We will only celebrate after we have collected all the points we need to secure the league title.”

Amakhosi coach Stuart Baxter watched the match from the stands because he is serving a two-game suspension for the red card he received during Chiefs’ encounter against Black Leopards for the Nedbank Cup.

This means Khumalo will also sit on the bench for the away game against Tuks on Tuesday.

Chiefs have five PSL games remaining - against University of Pretoria, Polokwane City, Mamelodi Sundowns, Bidvest Wits and Chippa United.
