Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane admits that his side are on route of reaching the 70-point mark in the Premiership.

The Brazilians are trailing log leaders Cape Town City by six points with six games in hand due to their busy 2016 schedule which in turn proved beneficial as they lifted the CAF Champions League.

Mosimane's charges have so far accumulated 25 points and currently occupy fifth position on the Premiership log standings.

According to KickOff, Mosimane says that having won the league last season the club have a vision to reach 70 points by the end of the campaign.

"You know the vision and mission we have for league. We can now talk about the league, because we know how to win it," said 'Jingles'.

"We have our blocks at this point in time. We are three points ahead of our program from last year, when we got 71 points.

"In a block of five (games), we try to get 12 points. If you get 12 points in blocks of five then you will get to 72 points (after 30 games)."

Sundowns face Chippa United in a Premiership fixture on Tuesday, February 14.

Kick off is at 19:30.
