Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates defender Mark Fish says the Absa Premiership title is for Mamelodi Sundowns to lose, but the Buccaneers must maintain their winning momentum to keep up the pressure.
Sundowns have the advantage in the race at the top of the standings with 46 points and a game in hand, but Pirates are breathing down their necks in second position with 45 points.
Fish, who was a member of the Bucs team that won the African Champions League in 1995, has admitted that his former club’s chances in the league race are very slim.
The 44-year old added that Pitso Mosimane’s side has the depth and quality to go all the way and clinch the title.
“I think Pirates should keep on putting Sundowns under pressure by winning their matches, but I still believe that it’s in Sundowns’ hands," Fish told the SABC.
“Pitso as he said in the interviews, they had eight games to play in 28 days which is very difficult, but he has the squad and the know-how.
“So, I do believe that it’s their league to throw away.”
The Buccaneers are next in action on Wednesday, April 11 at the Mbombela Stadium.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
