Royal AM’s Malawian coach John Maduka has played down any Caf Champions League qualification talk as other teams are still in contention for a second place finish.

The KwaZulu-Natal outfit is currently second on the DStv Premiership standings and has enjoyed a good run this season.

Maduka believes it is still too early to think about a Caf qualification spot.

“Not at all, it is still too early and there are still four games to play, 12 points to fight for. There’s still Cape Town City with two games in hand, and you have Kaizer Chiefs, Stellenbosch and Orlando Pirates. The fight is still on, not over yet,” Maduka told the media after the draw with AmaZulu.

“We still have a lot to fight for, we just need to make sure we win our remaining games and do it ourselves.”

Maduka said none of the teams in contention for second place can be comfortable about the situation.

“It is very important for us to win our own games, and not stress about other teams. The day we focus on what happens at Kaizer Chiefs, Stellenbosch or Orlando Pirates, we then lose our plot and concentration. We want to do it on our own”.—Soccerladuma.co.za
