Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela says they must now keep winning to ensure they challenge for the Absa Premiership title.
Amakhosi lost an opportunity to lift a trophy this season as they exited the Nedbank Cup last weekend.
Losing 5-3 to SuperSport United on penalties means the Soweto giants will have to double their efforts in aim of bagging the league.
Chiefs will meet log leaders Cape Town City on Tuesday night in a top of the table clash, and Komphela says it is not in their hands.

“Now turning all that to the league championship‚ the sad part of it is that we still have to depend on other people dropping points,” Komphela tells the Sowetan.
“The Nedbank was better off because when you could go on‚ you did not depend on somebody else’s results.
“So it’s all about now having to change focus‚ and hope that somebody else will drop their points. But we have no margin for error.
“We just have to keep winning our matches. The first one is now on Tuesday.
“And on the back of this‚ the biggest challenge would be how do you lift the players up and help them refocus‚ and look into the championship.”
Amakhosi sit at number three on the log table with 45 points from 24 matches and Eric Tinkler's men have 46 points from the same number of games.
The highly anticipated encounter will be staged at Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday night, kick-off at 19:30.
