Downs are top of the table with 52 points from 26 games - three points ahead of sole challengers Orlando Pirates, who have played an extra match.

With four league games left for Mosimane's men, the former Bafana Bafana mentor insists the race is not yet over.

"Calm down, we need to calm down," Mosimane said.

"I can see people are happy. We as coaches, we need to come down because this thing is not yet done, it's not yet decided."

Mosimane acknowledges Pirates - 2-1 victors over AmaZulu in Umlazi on Sunday - are hot on their heels.

"I think we need seven points from now, Mathematically you need seven points. Hopefully it can be decided early. It will be nice but we must keep calm, put pressure on Pirates. That's it because they put pressure on us. They are breathing down our neck."

Mosimen's side next host relegation-threatened Golden Arrows at Loftus Versfeld on Tuesday night.
