Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes Saturday's Absa Premiership clash against rivals Kaizer Chiefs will not have an impact on the title race.
Despite the contest expected to be an exciting battle as the result could have a big say in the outcome of the championship, Mosimane takes the view that this is not the case.
Sundowns are top of the log standings with 34 points while the Glamour Boys are in third on 29 points.
"They (Chiefs) do score goals but they are not 100% convincing, especially when you go at them like Polokwane City did, like Baroka did in the first-half last weekend," said Mosimane.
"That system works for them. I don’t think they will change it. We have also beaten them playing the way we like. If the game ends 4-4 it means the game is open and everybody is attacking.
"It makes for a good story to tell when there have been goals but it would be boring if the match ended goalless. There would be no story. They concede less because they sit back and we concede more because we go at teams."
The decorated 53-year-old mentor added that there is no clear challenger to the Brazilians at this stage of the campaign, saying: "Why should I worry about Chiefs? I have Cape Town City and Free State Stars also chasing. Had the other teams won at the weekend Chiefs would not be where they are (on the log).
"No one is consistent and that is why I don’t think this game has any meaningful bearing on the title chase. No coach can at this stage claim they will win the league."
Kick-off is at 20:15.
