Cape Town - In the face of winning the 2015/16 Premiership title, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane remains hungry for more ahead of the clash with Bidvest Wits on Wednesday.

With the league trophy sealed and ready to be delivered at Chloorkop on May 21, Mosimane insists his side will approach the Bidvest Stadium encounter with professionalism, as they target to finish the campaign with as many points as possible.

"We've got nothing to lose, but we've got pride to play for and we have integrity to play for," he said.

"We have set our goals for the number of points we want to achieve. We want to pass our target of 65 points that won us the league before. So we are competing with ourselves - we want to do better and we don't want to lose against Wits.

"I don't want other coaches to be upset with me now if I let [the game] go. I have to be a gentleman and play my best team even against Platinum Stars. I wouldn't like to raise the trophy after losing [against Stars]."
