Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Doctor Khumalo says the league title has not been decided yet ahead of his side’s Premiership match against University of Pretoria at Tuks stadium, in Pretoria on Tuesday.
The table-topping AmaKhosi are just three wins away from clinching the Premiership title, as they enjoy a 10-point advantage over second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns.
“We will only celebrate after we have collected all the points we need to secure the league title,” said Khumalo.
“The next game is always the most important. We can’t get too far ahead of ourselves.”
Khumalo took charge of Chiefs while head coach Stuart Baxter served a two-match suspension after he picked up a red card in his side’s 2-1 loss to Black Leopards in the Nedbank Cup at FNB Stadium on March 21.
Khumalo led the team in their previous leg match against AmaZulu which Chiefs won 1-0, and the clash against Tuks will be his last before Baxter returns to the helm.
The 47-year-old who made 50 appearances for Bafana Bafana, said his players would have what it takes to get the result away from home against the Pretoria outfit.
“We are at that stage of the league season when cool heads and professionalism must prevail. We are professionals.”
In the other match on Tuesday, Orlando Pirates make the trip up the M1 to take on Wits at Bidvest Stadium. Gavin Hunt’s Clever Boys are just three points behind the third-placed Pirates, and with a win could join the much-fancies Soweto Giants on 44 points with a game in hand.
The small Milpark ground will also negate the expansive style of play of the Buccaneers and an upset could well be on the cards.
