Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane believes the PSL title race is still very much alive and has urged his team to be relentless in their pursuit.

Mosimane watched on as his team completed a 3-0 victory over Chippa United on Saturday despite a sluggish first half performance.

The win moved Masandawana to within seven points of log leaders Kaizer Chiefs, who lost 2-1 at home against Maritzburg United, with the Tshwane club also still having a game in hand on Amakhosi.

Mosimane told reporters after the win against Chippa: "We have to push. If you want to stay in contention for the title, they (Sundowns players) have to push.

"I was telling them at half time that you are playing with an opportunity of keeping the league alive because they were missing and missing, they start back heels and it looks nice.

"I said there is one thing that you must know, we appreciate that you scored a goal in the first half and you are controlling the game, but the manner in which you are missing chances - you are skating on thin ice with an opportunity to chase the league.

"It's still alive until mathematically it's not."

Sundowns will look to gain more ground on Chiefs when they host Bloemfontein Celtic in a league clash on Wednesday.
