Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka remains adamant that Amakhosi still have a fighting chance of winning the Absa Premiership.

With 10 games left to play in the league, the Glamour Boys (28 points) find themselves in seventh position - nine points off the pace of log leaders Bidvest Wits (37).

In second-place Mamelodi Sundowns (35) have two games in hand while Cape Town City (30) in fifth place also have a game in hand.

Maluleka believes that the title race will go down to the wire and knows that anything is possible.

“Yes, I still think we can challenge. It’s going to go down to the last day, I think. But we believe we’re still there,” he stated as quoted by KickOff website.

“I mean, why else are we playing if we’re going to believe that we’re not going to [make it in the title race]. We believe we still can [win the title] and anything is possible.

“Everyone else is also dropping points - there’s draws and losses [for Sundowns and Orlando Pirates in midweek], so we need to keep our eyes open as well and hopefully it’ll swing our way.”

On Saturday, Amakhosi take on Polokwane City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium and a victory could surge Ernst Middendorp's charges to fifth place.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
