Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says it is time for his side to ‘buckle up’ as they are feeling the ‘stress and pressure’ ahead of their remaining matches in the Absa Premiership.
The Brazilians moved within three points of Amakhosi following their narrow 1-0 victory over Golden Arrows on Monday evening.
However, Sundowns will have the opportunity to go level on points with the Soweto giants when the two teams square off at the Orlando Stadium on Thursday.
Mosimane insists his side will continue to give it their all as they continue in their bid to secure a record 10th league title.
‘You have to buckle up‚ we are all feeling the pressure and the stress. It is difficult and you saw in the last ten minutes against Arrows‚ their defence was intact‚’ Mosimane told the media.
‘They make you fight hard to try and get the ball through them. We have been playing against reinforced defences for the last seven to eight years because everybody is against the ball when it comes to Sundowns. It’s football in the bubble and its survival of the fittest. The fat lady hasn’t sung and we are still going.’
Mamelodi Sundowns against Kaizer Chiefs kicks off at 6pm on Thursday.
