Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt says defending Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns are in the pound seat.
Sundowns, who have a game in hand, moved to the top of the standings last night following a 3-2 victory over Cape Town City at Loftus Stadium, after twice missing out on the chance to occupy the position with draws against Polokwane City and Wits.
Sundowns are favoured to win the title, considering the fact that they have a good in hand, but second-placed Wits and Orlando Pirates, who are in third, are going to keep fighting to the end.
“They are in the pound seat, you can’t take it away from them. It’s all to play for, there’s nothing more to say. We just got to prepare and go again and pick up the pieces. The only motivation is the next game, no matter what it is and try do our best. That’s all we can do. We’ve got nine games left,” Hunt said.
Wits could be four points behind the leaders by the time they take on the Citizens at Bidvest Stadium on Saturday at 20h15, as Sundowns will be hosting Bloemfontein Celtic at Loftus Stadium at 15h30.
