Cape Town - Former Sundowns and Orlando Pirates head coach Gordon Igesund believes the Absa Premiership title race will down to the wire this season.
Masandawana currently top the standings, leading Wits by a point but
the Tshwane club does still have a game in hand on their rivals.
Orlando Pirates find themselves in third place, three points behind
Sundowns, while Cape Town City are also still in the hunt in fourth
Igesund, who is a four-time winner of the PSL title each with a
different club, feels one of the top three will walk away with the
trophy and also pointed to the fact that Pitso Mosimane and Wits coach
Gavin Hunt knows what it takes to win a league title.
In quotes published on Goal, Igesund said: "I think this league title
can go either way in my opinion. Yes, it was a big result for Sundowns
against Cape Town City (3-2 win on Wednesday) because they had two games
"The pressure was mounting and they had to fight harder to get the
points. It is tough to compete against teams that have points when you
have games in hand, but they did well against City.
"I think the race is between the three teams: Bidvest Wits, Pirates
and Sundowns. They are the teams raising their hands to say we want to
win the league championship."
"I am sure (Sundowns coach) Pitso (Mosimane) knows how to handle the
pressure and he will ensure that his players remain level headed, while
Wits coach Gavin (Hunt) will do the same thing. These are two
experienced coaches when it comes to the league race."
