Amakhosi moved 13 points clear at the top of the league standings after second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns suffered defeat at the hands of Bloemfontein Celtic in midweek with just four fixtures of the season remaining.

Sundowns mathematically have a chance of overhauling Chiefs as they have a game in hand and 15 points to play for, but they will need the Glamour Boys to slip up in all of their remaining fixtures.

With the trophy all but wrapped up, Parker has urged his team-mates to focus on winning all of their remaining matches in order for the Glamour Boys to set a new points record in the top flight.

The current record is 65, set by the Brazilians, and Chiefs need just two wins to surpass that number this term, but Parker wants them to set the new record has high as possible.

"We already have one hand on the trophy. I think we should go all out and win all the remaining games and set new a PSL record in terms of points," Parker told goal.com.

"I think now that Sundowns have lost, and they are now far behind us on the log, this is extra relief on ourselves. So we can now express ourselves freely on the field of play. That would definitely, result in us getting good results in our remaining games.

"This season was more mental. We just focused on the mental aspect of the game, and it is about to pay off. It has helped us a lot."
