Pitso Mosimane: It’s a bit unfair

2014-04-19 21:33

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane said it was “it’s a bit unfair” to have one side with two games remaining while another had four in the run-in to the Absa Premiership, especially at this point of the campaign.

Speaking at a post-match conference following Sundowns’ 1-0 win over Moroka Swallows at the Dobsonville Stadium tonight, Mosimane was referring to his closest rivals, Kaizer Chiefs, who have four matches remaining compared with the Brazilians’ two fixtures in the current campaign.

“If we lose one game, they [Chiefs] will play for a draw and it will be over for us – I think it’s a bit unfair on us,” Mosimane pointed out, adding that, “I don’t want to say much because I’ll be in trouble.”

Sundowns lead the race with 61 points. There is a six-point difference between them and Chiefs in the second place on the log standings.

To make matters worse, Sundowns will wait for a full week before they meet SuperSport United on April 26.

“All I can say is that we have the advantage in the race because we have the points. We enjoy the stress with two games to go and we’ll keep on going.”

Chiefs were not in league action this weekend because of their CAF Confederation Cup fixture against Asec Mimosas of Ivory Coast, which takes place in Dobsonville tomorrow afternoon.

As for Sundowns’ victory, the team’s ninth win on the trot, Mosimane said: “One goal was golden” – referring to Teko Modise’s early first-half strike, which made the difference against a Swallows side that came close to scoring on two occasions in the first half.

Swallows coach Zeca Marques said: “It’s difficult to say we played well because we ended on the losing side.”
