Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker definitely doesn't agree with team-mate Ramahlwe Mphahlele that Amakhosi are already out of the Absa Premiership title race.

Parker is steadfastly refusing to count out his side's chances, despite the fact that the Soweto Giants currently find themselves down in seventh place in the table.

Even when reporters told him that Mphahlele told them that it was "all over for Chiefs in the league race", Parker wouldn't agree with the sentiments.

"Everybody has got their own opinions, but I don’t think it’s true what 'Rama' (Mphahlele) said‚" Parker told TimesLIVE website before adding with a smile, "Maybe he woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.

"It's for us to believe‚ and if we believe we know anything is possible. We’ve got quality‚ I mean‚ come on gents...

"We've got the quality and we’ve got the best technical staff and we we’ve got the best facilities and resources."

Parker was quick to point out that despite Chiefs' eight-point deficit to Orlando Pirates at the top of the table, they still have a game in hand and can reduce it to five points if they beat Maritzburg United at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

"It's just for us now as players to give our everything week in and week out in our remaining matches‚" Parker said.

"I know‚ and I know for sure‚ that if we give our all with the fight that we have within us‚ our quality will show automatically."
