Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admits he'd like to be crowned Premiership champions before the end of the season.
The Brazilians face title rivals Bidvest Wits in the penultimate match of the campaign, but Mosimane is hoping to beat University of Pretoria on Wednesday and that Mpumalanga Black Aces do them a favour against the Students on Tuesday to avoid a title face-off against Gavin Hunt's men.
"The last thing I want is to have to go to Bidvest Stadium needing a result," he told Business Day Live.
"We don't want to be playing for our lives, when we go to Bidvest Stadium. So, we will be going all out against Tuks. I am happy also we've got a better goal difference because you never know, we might not win against Tuks, we might draw.
"So, therefore, I'm treading carefully and taking it slowly. We've come from far. We are not going to let it go and become overexcited. No ways. But if we don't win against Tuks, we are going to make sure we don't lose."
Mosimane also revealed that he broke his team's routine in order to get a vital result against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday and is delighted it paid off as they secured a 3-1 victory.
"Usually, we would have had a long video analysis, both for the team and individually, of our performance from the previous game. But we didn't even watch our draw at Ajax," he said.
"Instead, I put on the first 30 minutes of the Telkom Knockout final, where we beat Chiefs and said to my players, 'we are the same team, same opponents.' I was hoping for shock therapy."
