Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy has apologised to Orland Pirates for taking away their shot at a league victory following their 2–2 draw.
The two teams faced each other at Athlone Stadium over the weekend.
In addition, McCarthy predicted that Mamelodi Sundowns would claim the title.
Sundowns are set to play against Golden Arrows on Tuesday. If they win, they will enter the final round of fixtures with a two-point lead.
Sundowns are also no longer in CAF. As a result, McCarthy said he though they would be on top form, as they have more time to focus on the league, according to Sowetan Live.
McCarthy added that he believed that Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane knew how to get the team to victory. He said that Sundowns have the upper hand, but added that Golden Arrows were a tough team and that they would not go down easily.
Following the draw against Pirates, McCarthy offered a "heartfelt apology" to the club, as Cape Town City had deprived them of the points they needed, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
"Today wasn't going to be the day they become champions on my watch," McCarthy said.
