"Our main focus at this stage is to win the league, we want to win all the remaining matches in order remain on top of the log.
"We are going to be ruthless with anybody who attempts to remove us on top of the log. As for Pirates they are in big trouble," Motaung is reported as saying on Sapa.

"We are well aware they are challenging for the league honours, but they will find themselves in big trouble if they expect us to donate even a single point."
Meanwhile, top referee Daniel Bennet has been given the job of officiating tomorrow's big game at the FNB Stadium. His assistants will be Tuko Malebo and Happy
