Orlando Pirates midfielder Musa Nyatama says the Sea Robbers shouldn’t not focus on chasing the league title because Mamelodi Sundowns have won the league already.

Pirates closed the gap to one point as they seat in second place on the log table. Coach Micho Sredojevic’s side beat Golden Arrows 2-1 on Saturday evening.

“We needed the three points. We’ve been working very hard at training with our tactics so I’m happy with the points,” Nyatama told SuperSport after the game.

“We needed to make it a point that we score and dominate as well. In the first half, I think we didn’t take our chances but in the second half we managed to do so.

“So it was a nervous end, but I’m happy that we managed to win. We needed to keep the ball which is our game model and on one or two occasions we didn’t do it well,” he added.

“I’m sure we’ll work again at training on it so that we make it a point that we don’t lose concentration towards the end of the game.

“Look, we are looking at ourselves to ensure we dominate and play well. But on that one, we are not looking at the league because Mamelodi Sundowns have won it already,” Nyatama said.
