Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs defender Eric Mathoho is convinced the side have learned from their previous mistakes as they look ahead to the final few games of the season.

Amakhosi were taught a harsh lesson last term as they surrendered a 12-point lead in the Premiership to eventually concede their crown to Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Soweto giants now appear in danger of suffering a similar fate, having seen an initial 15-point advantage whittled down to just seven by the Brazilians with six games remaining this term.

However, Stuart Baxter's men have the chance to widen the gap to 10 points as they face basement side AmaZulu and Mathoho insists the team are focused on success.

"We are doing well in the League and people can see it, though some still think we will make the same mistake [as last season] but I don’t think so because we are very focused," Tower, as he is affectionately known, told KickOff.

"We made a mistake last season and we learned from it.

“We are left with six games and we are going to push very hard.

“We are determined to make sure that there will be no mistakes this season."
