Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes all the teams in the PSL are still finding their rhythm since the league restarted.
Sundowns suffered a huge blow to their title aspirations after being beaten 3-2 by Cape Town City at Loftus Stadium last night.
The Brazilians now trail league leaders Kaizer Chiefs by six points with six games left before the end of the season.

Mosimane refused to agree with one of the journalists when it was suggested Orlando Pirates are playing with rhythm already since football returned.
"Pirates have not scored a goal for five games. Is that a rhythm? I don't think that's a good example," Mosimane said after the match, mistaken in that Pirates have actually not scored in four matches.
"Maybe you can speak about our rhythm not being there but you can't tell me about any team that has a rhythm. For me it's your opinion, it's my opinion, and I will always respect you as a sister.
"But for you to say Pirates has a rhythm, they haven't scored in five games. We scored four goals in the last four games and we played our fourth game in nine days.
"Yes, we don't have the rhythm and I think we should focus on our rhythm, which is not there. But if you talk about Pirates having the rhythm, I don't know. There are no goals there.
"We scored four now. Four games, four goals. You can look the way you want to look at it. You can look at it in a negative side the way we lost the game and I don't say we deserved to win the game today."
Sundowns' next fixture is against Maritzburg United at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Friday (18h00).
