Orlando Pirates coach Kjell Jonevret refuses to rule out top-eight finish

Bucs are 11th on the log with 33 points from 29 matches, and will need to beat Abafana Bes'thende by a five-goal margin and hope that Ajax Cape Town and Platinum Stars falter in their last outings to qualify for next season's MTN8.
Ajax host basement dwellers Baroka, while Stars are up against high-flying SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
"What do you say, it's not over until the day the lady sings but I don't know if the fat lady has sung," said Jonevret, who is mindful Pirates have been the only club to always finish in the top-eight since the PSL's inception in 1996. 
"But of course we should go and try and win the game again and we'll have to wait and see. I still think we should have won against Ajax Cape Town in the last league game and there we had a really good chance.
"But we'll enjoy going to the final [of the Nedbank Cup], train a few days and see what happens, but this will help in the way."
The Sea Robbers won the reverse fixture 3-1 under Jonevret's predecessor Muhsin Ertugral as Tendai Ndoro hit a hat-trick before Nduduzo Sibiya grabbed a consolation goal for the visitors at Orlando Stadium.
The two clubs are familiar with meeting on the final day of the season, having also done so in 2010/11, 2011/12 and 2013/14.
