Mosimane expects more twists and turns in title race


Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane believes the unpredictable nature of the Absa Premiership since the restart in the PSL Bio Bubble makes their next opponents Polokwane City a potential threat to their title ambitions.

Mosimane’s men will be looking to bounce back from their shock defeat over the weekend at the hands of Baroka as they tackle relegation candidates Polokwane in their penultimate round of the Premiership on Wednesday night at Loftus Stadium, 18:00.

“We have checked that they played two systems. They’ve been playing four at the back, but now lately they’ve played five at the back. They are desperate, like we are, you know,” said Mosimane.

“But, you know, they’re tough. Look, there’s no team that’s in the bubble you can see you can easily beat anybody. We are just beating each other. You never know where it’s going and who’s going to beat who.

“And I think it’s the best time for bookmakers now because this thing is really unpredictable and it can go wherever it goes,” added Mosimane.

‘Rise and Shine’ are fighting for their lives at the foot of the table with 25 points with only two matches remaining. Meanwhile, Sundowns are in second place, behind title rivals Kaizer Chiefs on goal difference.

“So, yeah, we have never been in the driving seat, but you never know because we are beating each other and the draws and everything is possible. So, we keep going until the fat lady sings,” he said.

“As I said earlier, the championship is not a Chiefs and Sundowns match. I said it and it shows that. I think this one will go to the last line of the last game.

“It’s tough stuff, you’re facing, people who want to win, people who even if they only get one point, they will cherish it. And then we will need maximum points. Because if you don’t get maximum points, how do you expect to win the league?

“It’s very difficult and very emotional. You saw the Baroka fight and how they celebrated after that match,” concluded the Sundowns mentor.
