CAPE TOWN- Kazier Chiefs defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele said he believed that log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns are under pressure as the season comes to close and they can feel the heat.

Amakhosi are eight points behind the leaders in fifth place and could still possibly mount a challenge for the title as there are seven games left to be played.

Mphahlele said on the clubs website, “It’s difficult (to stay on top) honestly speaking, because you know there are people behind you and they are very capable of catching you.

“They (Sundowns) know that Orlando Pirates are behind them, Maritzburg United are there, they know we are there and Free State (Stars) are there.

“They are human beings and they will feel the pressure to say, ‘okay, we can’t drop more points, because if we do these guys are coming’.

“So as much as it’s difficult to chase, it’s also difficult being on top, because everybody who’s playing against you wants your piece that they can beat the number one team. But [Sundowns] have the experience.”
