Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise admits the side have the utmost respect for Kaizer Chiefs, but insists that does not mean they fear the reigning PSL champions.

According to the website, the two South African juggernauts will square off at the FNB Stadium on Saturday in a top of the table encounter, with Chiefs currently leading the Brazilians only on goal difference.

Amakhosi's participation in the CAF Champions League, though, means they also have two games in hand over Downs, who saw off University of Pretoria 2-1 at the weekend to climb joint-top.

"The win against Tuks puts us close to where we want to be, which is close to the top," Modise told his official website.

"This ensures that we are within reach of the pole position and with a strong final push towards the end we can clinch the title if we manage to maintain our momentum.

"The road going forward gets more difficult as we want to win the league just like all the teams have similar ambitions. This also means all the teams aim to play better than us including Chiefs and that makes them dangerous. This of course puts a lot of pressure on us, but we always aim to do our best.

"The team is doing well and game after game we are improving and getting stronger. I am just happy that we are getting the results to reflect our hard work and all round improvement as a team.

"We respect Kaizer Chiefs just like any other team. Everyone knows how good they are and we also acknowledge that. Do not get me wrong, we do not fear anyone."
