Cape Town - Orlando Pirates legend Jerry Sikhosana feels the club can only steal the league title away from Mamelodi Sundowns if they remain consistent in their remaining six games.
The Buccaneers are a point behind the Brazilians in second place, having played a game more than the league leaders.
However, Sikhosana says the Soweto giants are a different team when they come against big guns such as Kaizer Chiefs and Sundowns, but the attitude is different when they face the smaller clubs.
He gave an example of the recent defeat to Cape Town City in the Nedbank Cup, where Pirates were expected to get the better of the Benni McCarthy's side having clinched all three points against Chiefs in a league match.
"The problem with me is that I am a bit arrogant in terms of the knowledge of the game, you know. Because sometimes I believe that, if you are consistent, you will win the league.
"My honest answer is, Pirates is going to win the league, but let them be consistent. Because the problem is, they play AmaZulu they get a draw, they play Sundowns they win the match, they play Chiefs they win the match then they go play Platinum Stars and it's a draw.
"My problem is the attitude. The attitude of the players turns to differ when they play smaller clubs or teams at the bottom of the table."
