Sundowns face the possibility of being docked points for fielding an ineligible Arendse in their Absa Premiership match against the Clever Boys in October last year.

The former Santos defender was fielded despite not being in the original match day squad. The PSL released a statement on February 4 saying Sundowns were due to appear in front of the disciplinary committee on February 6, but there has been no verdict.

Mosimane has kept in mind that Sundowns could be docked points, so he is encouraging his players to collect as many points as they can so that it does not affect them at the end of the season.

"It's difficult because you never know what's happening. Remember there is still a Wayne Arendse case that is still hanging, I don't know why when is it coming. It's unbelievable, it's taking too long. So we are also careful about those issues. We drew with Wits at that time, so Lux [PSL communications manager] will tell you if he will take a point from us or if he will give Wits three, for a match they did not win. I don't know, because it's interesting for us," the former Bafana Bafana coach said. 

"When the case of Ajax [Cape Town] went on last season, I told the guys that we must have four points more, so that whenever three points is docked, we have one more. So we are careful, we know this thing. Probably it will come two matches before the season finishes. So it's where we are, it's reality and we are experienced in this game. We know these things, so we have to be careful of how we do this thing. I am budgeting three points that might be taken, so at least I will have one more. This game against Pirates was a blessing in disguise to be moved, because if you had it at the back [April 27] where it was, it could have been difficult for us."
