'Chiefs are just far away from of us'


Golden Boot-chasing striker Bradley Grobler concedes it will not help SuperSport United to fixate on trying to chase runaway leaders Kaizer Chiefs.

Grobler believes it will be hard to catch Amakhosi despite his coach Kaitano Tembo remaining positive that they are still in the title race alongside Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits.

"I think if we can be realistic with ourselves, Chiefs are far away from us," he admits.

"I think if we are going to say we will win the league, we would be very optimistic. I think we just need to focus on ourselves.

"We set targets for ourselves, we want to finish as high as we can. We shall focus on that and whatever happens, happens.

"I think Chiefs are way ahead of us. If we chase them it's going to be difficult."

Grobler is enjoying the top goalscorer race this season and has vowed to fight until the end to win the Lesley Manyathela award.

Orlando Pirates forward Gabadinho Mhango has raised the bar as he keeps scoring goals almost every week, currently the clear front-runner with 14 league goals.

"I think for any striker, if the desire is not there to be a top goalscorer, you are wasting your time," he adds.

"Of course I will fight till the last game of the season. I think it's going to be a very interesting race. There's lot of good players out there who are scoring regularly.

"So it's going to be very interesting. My main target is to play games, play week in and week out. I will fight till the last day to be the top scorer."
