Cape Town - Wits coach Gavin Hunt insists his focus is only winning their own games and they will not worry about what other teams are doing as the Absa Premiership title race gathers momentum.

The Clever Boys beat Maritzburg United 1-0 on Friday to open up a five-point lead at the top of the table over Orlando Pirates, who have a game in hand.

Wits are also six points ahead of defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns, although the Brazilians do have three games in hand owing to their fixtures in the CAF Champions League.

Hunt though is not concerned if his title rivals drop points or not and just wants his side to be consistent and see where that takes them.

According to quotes published on the IOL website, Hunt said: "We can't be concerned about other people. Our focus is winning our games without looking at what others are doing.

"What will be key for us is to stay consistent. We must also keep on doing the things that have taken us where we are right now. We will see where that takes us."

Hunt and his team next take on Highlands Park in the league clash away from home next Saturday.
