Pirates are three points ahead of second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns, who have played one game less than the Soweto giants.
Sundowns are in action against Chippa United tonight.
“There are three games remaining and the mission is almost accomplished, they must just keep their feet on the ground and ensure they don’t drop points,” Lekoelea told Goal.
Pirates’ next assignment is against Maritzburg United at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Wednesday night.
“They will win on Wednesday and I know (Eric) Tinkler was a coach at Pirates, but that is a long time ago. I also don’t think Fadlu’s presence will have something to do with the game because he is no longer with Maritzburg, he knows Pirates now and he is not focusing on the past but on the future with us, and he is a professional,” commented Lekoelea.
