Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt remains optimistic that his team can give log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns a run for their money.
The second-placed university club fell behind in the title race after being held to a goalless draw by Free State Stars on Saturday.
Despite being six points adrift of Sundowns, Hunt believes his team can put up a good fight with five games to go before the end of the season.
"I think it is still a long way to go...five games it's a lot. Anything can happen, there are a lot of points to play for and we don't worry about them; we worry about ourselves," Hunt told KickOff.
"We will keep on going. We have 52 points after 25 games - two points a game, and the league has been won by two points a game in the last years, so we will keep on going.
"But we've done well to get this far with five or six players out. Papy Fatty, Phakamani Mahlambi, Elias Pelembe haven't played much, Thulani Hlatswayo has been battling with injuries, Sibusiso Vilakazi hasn't been fit so we played with players who were not here the whole season and we've done great to get here."
This weekend Free State Stars welcome The Students to Goble Park for a Nedbank Cup quarter-final clash.
Kick-off is at 15:00 on Saturday, April 23.
