Pitso: I can't be looking up at Chiefs

Premiership

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is trying not to look at the growing gap to league leaders Kaizer Chiefs, which now stands at 10 points.

The defending champions suffered their second loss of the Absa Premiership season against Golden Arrows on Sunday, losing 3-2 at a rain-soaked Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.

'Jingles' says he is not worried about what happens with Amakhosi because of their experience in chasing and defending league titles.

"No, if you focus on other people you are losing the plot. You need to focus on yourself. We know how we win the league," Mosimane said.

"We've won the league four times in the last six years, two times we came second, this is not new to us. What we need to focus on is Sundowns."

Sundowns have their own target which is not affected by Chiefs' form, so according to Mosimane they are only five points behind and running their own race.

"At this point in time we are five points behind our programme. If anybody has got more than five to us good luck to that person, that means they've done very well.

"So you can't be looking at your neighbour that he's got a new car now you want a new car, you've got to focus on yourself.

"You can talk about ten points but we are five points behind in our programme and we get that programme when we get to 75 points. We want 72 in total so we are running our own race," he explained.

"There are so many things that are happening like the goal today [Denis Onyango blunder]. We don't have Themba Zwane for the last four games, we don't have [Gaston] Sirino now in the last two games.

"Those are things that are part of football, injuries are part of the game, so we are going through that process."
