Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has conceded that Cape Town City are now favourites to lift the PSL trophy at the end of the season.

The Brazilians moved up to second place in the Absa Premiership standings after beating Ajax Cape Town 2-0 at Loftus Versveld on Tuesday.

The Urban Warriors made a fight of it in the first half, but Pitso Mosimane's side showed their quality in the second half as goals from Percy Tau and Themba Zwane kept their title defence alive.

Meanwhile, City overcame Kaizer Chiefs 3-2 at Cape Town Stadium to remain at the summit of the table.

Sundowns have two games in hand (played 23) and are on 47 points while City notched up 49 points having played 25 games.

According to KickOff website, Mosimane believes that Eric Tinkler’s charges are in a good position to lift the title despite his side having games in hand.

“The title is in Cape Town City's hands at the moment,” says Mosimane.

“Today (Tuesday) in the morning it was in Bidvest Wits' hands but now that has exchanged hands. It is (now) in Cape Town City's hands.

“No matter what you say, they have the points. When you have points you remain on top of the log.”
