Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes Orlando Pirates are still in it to win the Absa Premiership title this season.
Pirates dropped two crucial points away from home on Saturday after drawing 2-2 with Cape Town City at Athlone Stadium.
Sundowns now stand a good chance of snatching the league title if they win both their remaining matches against Golden Arrows and Free State Stars.
'Jingles' believes the Mighty Buccaneers are not out of it.
"Pirates are still in it," said Mosimane.
"They tried hard, they kept same team for two years, they kept the same coach and increased personnel and they really showed they want it. I said it they can win and if they win I will congratulate Micho [Milutin Sredojevic], Rhulani [Mokwena] and Fadlu [Davids]."
Sundowns host Golden Arrows at Loftus Stadium tonight and a win would take them top of the table, two points ahead of Pirates.
