Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has cautioned optimism after reducing Kaizer Chiefs' lead at the top of the Absa Premiership to four points with a 3-0 victory over AmaZulu on Saturday evening.

After Chiefs had slipped up with a 2-1 defeat to SuperSport United earlier in the evening, Sundowns capitalised with a Sibusiso Vilakazi goal and a Themba Zwane brace.

But Mosimane is not getting ahead of himself with a crucial clash against Bidvest Wits on Tuesday on the the horizon.

"All I know is that May is too far, it's a lot of games behind and it doesn't mean anything because Kaizer Chiefs can widen the gap again, we're playing Wits, a very strong team," Mosimane told SuperSport TV.

"We're playing Wits all the time after two-and-half, three days. You know, it would be nice for once to open a little bit. It's not gonna be easy.

"We don't want to get excited about that because it's a strong game but tonight's game was important for us to win. We played Wits here [in the first round] we did well, let's be honest we should have won, because we missed a lot of chances, 'Mshishi' missed two open chances and [Motjeka] Madisha hit the post.

"But Wits is a strong team, you see how they play it's not easy. I was surprised we got so many chances against them and I know 'Hunty' [Gavin Hunt] will change, he''ll sort it out, it's not gonna be easy. The match on Tuesday is a very important game."
