Cape Town - Interim Chippa United coach Roger Sikhakhane has played down his chances of taking over the reins of the club on a full-time basis despite their impressive form over the past month.

The 38-year-old has done admirably since taking over from Kosta Papic, who resigned at the start of September, winning three out of his four Premiership games and drawing the other.

"I don't know about permanent, but for now I am the coach of the club," Sikhakhane told Football411. "That's all I know."

The Chilli Boys beat Moroka Swallows and AmaZulu away from home, whilst also ousting giants Orlando Pirates and drawing with Mamelodi Sundowns.

They have, however, been eliminated from the Telkom Knockout when they lost to Platinum Stars.

"My boys won three games in a row before Sundowns and they kept three clean sheets in that time as well," the caretaker coach said. "They have been superb."

Sikhakhane comes up against former boss Papic and his new club Polokwane City this Saturday and victory, coupled with other results going their way, could see them vault into the top three.

"Our least concern at the moment is the log," he added. "More importantly is performance and trying to win each and every game or to get a point."
