Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes his side have the stamina and pedigree to stay in the hunt for the Absa Premiership title.

Sundowns are currently in third place in the standings and trail leaders Bidvest Wits by three points, though the Brazilians do have three matches in hand.

However, they could go top on Tuesday night with a victory when they take on AmaZulu at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria.

He told reporters: "I don't want to focus on people who've got more points than us.

"Let's take it one step at a time because this thing is going to go for long. I don't know who will sustain it.

"Now it is still okay because we still have resources a little bit, and the fuel is still there.

"But I'm looking at the gauge and seeing who will last longer. But we have Hlompho Kekana and Tiyani Mabunda, who know how to manage the game well.

"We have experience to manage the game. We have the likes of Anele Ngcongca, who played Champions League football in Europe."

With that said, Usuthu come into the contest not having won in 2019. The visitors from Durban will no doubt hope to pick up at least a point to avoid being drawn back into a relegation dogfight.

Kick-off is 19:30.
