Johannesburg - With a crucial run of matches to come in terms of the destiny of the PSL title race, Kaizer Chiefs defender, Tefu Mashamaite, has explained why the club is not feeling any pressure.

According to the website, the Glamour Boys take on second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday in a game which could potentially have huge implications in the battle for league honours.

A victory for Sundowns and they're right back in it even though the Amakhosi still have a game-in-hand. A win for Chiefs and they may feel they're in total control, especially with a string of matches to come against bottom half-of-the-table opponents.

As a result, Saturday's clash has ratcheted up the significance of this weekend's massive clash for both outfits.

Nonetheless, Mashamaite maintains that the club aren't feeling pressure from Sundowns, or the chasing pack as well.          

He told Soccer Laduma in edition 865, "I don't know what pressure you mean because we were leading them in the games that we played. If we continue without worrying about them then we can be successful...We must not do things because another team is doing them...We want to defend our league title and go to Africa again, so this is one of the games we have to win."

Saturday's action gets underway from 19:30 at FNB Stadium.
