Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Mandla Masango is refusing to take anything for granted in the second-half of the Premiership campaign, despite their big lead atop the standings.

Amakhosi will resume their hunt for the top-flight crown on Wednesday when they travel to Bloemfontein Celtic with a 15-point advantage over the chasing pack after going their first 18 league matches without defeat.

That lead has led to claims the title race is all but over, but Masango, who recently returned from South Africa's failed 2015 Africa Cup of Nations campaign, believes nothing in football is certain.

When asked whether Chiefs were a sure thing for the title, Masango said: "Not necessarily. I don't agree, because football is a game that you cannot predict.

"You never know what can happen tomorrow so anything is possible in football.

"It is good that we have a 15-point lead, but we shouldn't take it for granted because the second half of the season is more about the mental part of the game.

“We will go out there to make sure we don't repeat the same mistakes of last season."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
