Pitso: It's not over until fat lady sings

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has warned that the Absa Premiership title race is still far from over.

Sundowns moved level on points with leaders Orlando Pirates on Tuesday with a 3-2 victory over Chippa United at Loftus Stadium, but the Buccaneers moved three points clear with their victory at Maritzburg United’s Harry Gwala Stadium on Wednesday night.

Sundowns, though, will have to wait on the verdict of their PSL disciplinary committee case involving defender Wayne Arendse, who was ineligle to play when the Brazilians faced , due to the fact that he was not on the 18-man match day squad list.

Both Sundowns and Arendse, as well as PSL with their prosecutor Nande Becker, have made written submissions to the disciplinary committee in an effort to get the matter resolved as soon as possible.

This could see Sundowns being docked a point, but Mosimane has issued a warning to their rivals that they should not count their chickens before they hatch.

"They always it’s not over until the fat lady sings. She hasn't sung yet," said Mosimane, before Sundowns rushed to the OR Tambo international airport for their flight to Rabat, where they’ll face Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League first leg semifinal on Friday.

“On paper, the league standings say I have 50 points, but in reality I don’t know,” Mosimane said, in reference to the pending disciplinary case. “Until that thing [the sentence] comes out, I don’t know how many I have.”

The match between Black Leopards and Sundowns, which was scheduled for May 1 in Thohoyandou, will now be played on April 30.
