Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele insisted his team are not concerned with the chasing pack in the title race, preferring instead to focus on their own run of games, and form.

Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat were on target in the 2-0 victory over Jomo Cosmos at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday, leaving the Brazilians in pole position to clinch the Premiership with a comfortable six-point lead at the summit of the table.

"We knew that if we defend well, then 'CBD' (Castro, Billiat and Keagen Dolly) will always get us goals," Mphahlele told KickOff.

"We are happy with the three points; we are happy with the win. It's up to the other teams behind us to win and catch up on us.

"We can only look at ourselves at the moment. We cannot worry about other people's results. We have to control our results and see how it goes."

Sundowns have a tough fixture schedule which starts with a CAF Champions League clash against AS Vita on Wednesday and a Nedbank Cup semi-final encounter against Orlando Pirates on Saturday.
