Pitso: We still don't know our points

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has taken another jab at the PSL's slow process of deciding whether or not to deduct points.

Sundowns face the possibility of being docked points after being found guilty of fielding illegible player Wayne Arendse during a league match against Bidvest Wits in Tshwane last year.

Mosimane has expressed his unhappiness in recent weeks about the delay by the PSL to deliver the verdict regarding the Arendse case.

After their 2-1 victory against Baroka away from home on Saturday, Sundowns have moved second on the log, three points behind Orlando Pirates with one game in hand.

"I don't know how many points adrift from the log leaders but I know we got three points [against Baroka] today (Saturday)," said Mosimane at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday before a question diverted his thoughts to the game against Bakgaga.

"To be honest I never thought the game will come out the way it came out, because these guys are a difficult team to break down. We always struggle and everybody has struggled against them," said Mosimane.

"But until we found our rhythm, the good thing we found it very early, they struggled with [Tiyani] Mabunda and [Hlompho] Kekana to close down and once they closed them down we went to [Sibusiso] Vilakazi and Themba Zwane much easier in the pockets.

"They just couldn’t deal with the way we play and it gave us confidence on the ball so we gained momentum and kept passing and passing, and the goal came. They got an equaliser but we missed a lot of chances," he added.

Sundowns are set to host Chippa United in their next Absa Premiership game at Loftus Stadium tonight.
