Cape Town - Pitso Mosimane wants his Sundowns team to use their experience of being top of the log to close out the league campaign.

Masandawana, who are the defending PSL champions, went to the summit of the standings for the first time this season when they beat Cape Town City 3-2 on Wednesday.

The Tshwane club now hold a one point lead over Wits with ten games remaining and are favourites to retain the title.

Mosimane said in quotes on the Sundowns website: "This is the first time we're on top. If we apply our experience of being there, because we have been there before.

"Normally when we're there, we don't come back. I hope we continue with the same experience. We will see."

Sundowns host Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday before tackling Cape Town City again in the Mother City on Tuesday.

Mosimane continued: "Bloemfontein Celtic, I hope that they don't disturb us. But the big one is the return leg in Cape Town against Cape Town City on Tuesday.

"They will never, ever, ever allow us to score three goals.

"It's going to be a tight one, it's going to be like the Wits one. I hope that there are no red cards. You never know, maybe you nick it and go with it."
