Sundowns suffered their first defeat in the league when they were beaten 2-0 by Chiefs last Sunday but despite that result and their lead at the top of the table, 'Jingles' is quick to remind Amakhosi about their failed race to win the championship in the 2013/14 season.

"We are going to fight for the PSL league. We fought for the league with them [Kaizer Chiefs] before and they gave it away," said Mosimane.

"Then came Wits [in 2015/16] and they gave it away. Pirates for the last years, they gave it away. So we fight again.

"But the common denominator is us fighting for the league for six years. We came second twice and four times we won it. You must have endurance when you fight with us. You must go six years. We are here.

"One match doesn't mean anything."
