Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs captain Tefu Mashamaite admits his team cannot afford to take any more missteps this season after dropping two more points during Saturday's goalless draw against Orlando Pirates.

When Amakhosi returned from the mid-term break, they were 15 points ahead of the Premiership pack, but after the draw against the Buccaneers, that lead has been chopped down to just 11.

This is compounded by the fact that second-placed Mamelodi Sundows still have a game in hand.

It is not dangerous territory yet, but Mashamaite has nevertheless cautioned against any complacency ahead of the club’s trip to Maritzburg United on Wednesday night.

The Team of Choice have been through a barren spell in 2015, which is all the more reason for Chiefs to be clinical.

“What we want to do is make sure we collect as many three points as we can in the remaining games,” Mashamaite told Soccer Laduma.

“There are very few games remaining now and each game is almost a six pointer as all the teams want three points.

“We have forgotten about the derby and Maritzburg are next,” added Mashamaite.

“We can't afford to drop points again. We need to collect full points against them.”
