Polokwane - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise says the Brazilians are not getting carried away with recent results coming their way.
The “Navigator” was on target as the reigning Absa Premiership winners thumped PSL strugglers Polokwane City 3-0 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.
Themba Zwane and the in-form Cuthbert Malajila also registered their names on the scoresheet for the Pretoria-based side.
Although the Brazilians registered their third consecutive league triumph, the former Bafana Bafana player hinted that his team-mates are not getting their hopes up but they intend to take it one game at a time.
“We work very hard at training,” said Modise.
“Whatever you are seeing in our matches we are just implementing what we do at training.
“We want to take it as each game comes. We don’t want to get our hopes up so early.
“We just want to play better and improve in each and every game we play. Football is all about competition and everyone wants to compete.
“We are just waiting for all teams above us on the log to drop points without pressuring ourselves.
“They are currently playing good football and on their winning ways. But we will just make sure we do well in our games but we are finally on the right track.”
Modise produced one of his top performances on Sunday, winning the man-of- the-match award, but stressed that Rise and Shine gave them a good run for their money.
“First half it was very difficult for us to play. They put us under a lot of pressure and they only made us play in the second half.
“The game opened up for us in the second half and we also managed to get some goals.”
Sundowns are now fourth on the log due to their inferior goal difference from third placed, Bidvest Wits.
Their next game will be at home against Wits on October 18.
