Mosimane expects PSL title race to be decided on the final day of the season

Wits‚ who were shocked 3-1 by Free State Stars on the same night‚ lead the Brazilians by two points and the Students will be crowned champions for the first time in PSL era if they win their remaining matches against Polokwane City and Kaizer Chiefs.
On the other hand‚ Sundowns’ last two matches are against Maritzburg United and Highlands Park where they must get six points while hoping that Wits stumble against City or Chiefs to retain the championship title.
“It is not easy and it is going to go to the wire‚" said Mosimane‚ who appeared calm despite dropping two crucial home points against Baroka that denied them an opportunity to go top of the standings.
"We have to keep going‚ at least we gained a point against Baroka FC and we wished we could have gained all three.
"It is the way it is and we have to accept it‚ there is no other way.”
Mosimane added that the results of the past few weeks have proved the unpredictable nature of the PSL.
“You will never know which game you will win.
"Against Platinum Stars here (at home) we dropped two points.
"Against Baroka we dropped two more points and we went to Orlando Pirates and won.
"It is not about the quality of the team‚ it is about what is happening on the day.
"We have Maritzburg United in our next match and I know that if we are fresher we can do something.”
Reflecting on the 2-2 draw against Baroka‚ Mosimane admitted that they were not at their best but they gave the match everything.
“To tell you the truth‚ they were stronger than us physically‚ sharper than us and a bit quicker than us but I know why.
"We have played three games and they have not played since Bloemfontein Celtic if I am not mistaken.
"We played against Wits‚ a game that took a lot from our legs‚ against Platinum Stars who were fighting at the bottom of the log‚ and Orlando Pirates.
"I saw how Baroka fought against Pirates and I knew that they were going to fight against us.
"I thought in terms of tactics we could have done something better but we didn’t and they matched us.
"A point was not good enough for us but that is what we gained and it is the way it is."
He went on to say that he spoke to defender Thapelo Morena‚ who conceded the late penalty‚ and he admitted that the ball hit his hand.
"He says the ball first hit the body and it went to the hand.
"It reminds me of a match against Golden Arrows where the ball hit Nkosinathi Mthiyane’s body and then the hand but referee Ace Ncobo said it was not a penalty."

  1. I hate to see my team in the situation where they have to rely on other teams to win in order to win the trophy...but again where there's a chance there's hope in other words we can still win the league.
