Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he is paying no mind to Kaizer Chiefs' stunning Premiership form, preferring instead to focus on his own team's ambitions.

The reigning PSL champions hoisted themselves to second in the top-flight standings on Saturday following their 2-0 win over Free State Stars, although they remain 13 points behind runaway leaders Amakhosi, who beat Orlando Pirates by the same scoreline.

Mosimane, though, is uninterested in the results of the other clubs in South Africa and is focusing solely on the job at hand, which to the tactician is bettering the points tally that handed Sundowns the Premiership crown last term.

"Our objective is to go over 65 points...that's what we fighting for.  We don't worry about anyone else; we don't worry about what we can't control...we need to beat our own record (from last season)," Mosimane said.

"In football, once you start thinking you arrived, that's when you make mistakes. Sundowns is playing very well all the time. Once Sundowns gets the result and the goals, we look a different team.

"The confidence is starting to come slowly and we are scoring goals."
