Pitso: We can afford to drop three points

Downs lead second-placed Orlando Pirates by a point, but the 2016 African champions have a game in hand. Despite the pressure the Buccaneers are putting on them at the top of the table, Mosimane feels he can still afford to drop points.

“We will try and win the league the way we have been winning leagues,” Mosimane said.

“We will try focus on our games because when you start looking and focusing on your neighbors or other people you losing the plot.

“What it is important at Sundowns is to concentrate on the games that we have. It is in our hands and that's the best position to be.”

 “When you are chasing, you are forever hoping that the person will lose. There are too many things happening.

“We are watching what can we do, we just watch. We can afford to lose three points. I'm not saying it’s comfortable, but we can afford to lose three points.

“We will talk when the time comes, at this pointing time, we are in the lead until somebody [else] leads.

“We can't control all the other things, our job is to play on the pitch.”

Sundowns, who are chasing an eighth PSL title, will take on Chippa United at Loftus Stadium tomorrow night (19h30), as they return to league action, following their involvement in the CAF Champions League and Nedbank Cup.

Mosimane's men last played a league match on March 2, when they beat AmaZulu 3-1 at King Zwelithini Stadium.

Pirates, meanwhile, will host Bloemfontein Celtic at Orlando Stadium tomorrow night (19h30), as they look to continue putting pressure on Sundowns.
