AmaKhosi are three points clear of Sundowns going into Saturday's game, but Yeye who admitted that Chiefs are favourites to win the league, said that game is not a title decider

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Reneilwe “Yeye” Letsholonyane has refused to admit that their game against Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday could decide who will be crowned champions at the end of the season.

Letsholonyane sees the clash as another opportunity for AmaKhosi to extend their lead at the summit of the PSL log. The Brazilians trail Chiefs by three points going into Saturday's game.

"I would say it's not a title decider," Letsholonyane told reporters gathered in Naturena on Thursday. "But an opportunity for us to open up the gap, because we know that if we win on Saturday we will be six points ahead with a game in hand," he said.

Yeye also admitted that AmaKhosi are strong favourites to win the league for the second season running, but he added that it's now up to the players to not lose games until the end of the season to achieve that.

"I would say that it's true. We've been playing well since the season started and we've been on top of the log. So, now if we allow ourselves to lose games then we will lose the league," he added.

The Soweto giants edged Pitso Mosimane's side in the first round played in Tshwane earlier this year, and another victory against them this weekend will be crucial to their title defence.
