Orlando Pirates are 6 points clear on top of the Absa Premier League table following their 2 – 1 win over Free State Stars on Saturday.
Mamelodi Sundowns have three games in hand and they have to make up for lost time. Sundowns will play three games in seven days starting this Wednesday against Pretoria rivals Supersport United. They will then face Baroka on Saturday and Chippa United next Tuesday.
Sundowns also face the prospect of being docked points following the Wayne Arendse case.
