Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is optimistic that the Brazilians could still defend their PSL title despite the 15-point gap between them and log leaders Kaizer Chiefs.

Sundowns currently trail Chiefs by 15 points, but with a game in hand.

“I have seen Sundowns squander a 12-point lead in the past and I have seen Bayern Munich get only one point from six matches, but I have also seen the very same Sundowns fight back from an 11-point deficit,” Mosimane told the official Sundowns website.

“We’ve been on this road before but what is important is that we do what we did last year. We need to focus on our game and take it match by match because that’s the only thing we have control over.

“At this stage it is very important to grind out results and not undermine any team. It won’t always be fancy. I have confidence in my squad because I know they can grind out results just like they did last season,” added Mosimane.

Meanwhile, Mosimane has revealed that Bafana Bafana duo Themba Zwane and Bongani Zungu could sit out tonight’s game against Moroka Swallows.

“We had the opportunity to assess the two players coming back from national duty with Bafana and because they didn’t play, we might decide not to rush them, but we’ll see.

“The good thing though is that we have a lot of players in these positions who we have worked with and prepared while they were away. For example we have Hlompho Kekana, Surprise Moriri or Kudakwashe Mahachi, who have really been working hard.”

Sundowns will face Swallows at Lucas Moripe Stadium tonight at 7.30pm.
