Baxter says he is not concerned by Sundowns and their games in hand as his side look to extend their lead at the top of the log table. The Brazilians have three matches in hand to outdistance their neighbours.

The former Bafana Bafana mentor praised his players for executing his plan on the field and warned against basking in the glory of positive match results.

“We have put ourselves in a position of favourites and one of the candidates,” Baxter told The Sowetan.

“The players must not let this current success go to their heads, but they must give everything that they have to the cause.

“I don’t worry about Sundowns because I can’t control what they are going to do in their next matches.

“We are top of the log‚ we are candidates with things in our hands, and we can perform to the level that put us in the mix.”
