Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise is excited about the club's prospects this season, but admits competing in three competitions adds extra pressure.

Entering into the twilight of the campaign, the Brazilians are second in the Premiership standings, through to the quarter finals of the Nedbank Cup and are still in the CAF Champions League.
The 32-year-old, though, revealed there is extra pressure on the squad because they cannot afford to lose a single game in any competition.
"There is a lot of excitement. But also a lot of pressure, it can seem scary at times," Modise told the official PSL website.
"Because of the situation we are in, we cannot afford to lose a game.
"Lose to Aces in the league and we could be out. Lose to Aces in the Nedbank (Cup), and we are out the cup. Lose to TP Mazembe in the Champions League, and we are out.
"Each game is a test of our resolve and character."
The Bafana Bafana midfielder revealed there is a lot of belief within the current squad and says they will take heart from their strong finish to the season last term.
"We believe in ourselves, we have to do favours for ourselves, no one else will," he said.
"We can take inspiration from what we did last season. But last season was different - we were only fighting for the league, not for three different trophies.
"It's tough, we could win all three, or we could end up winning nothing."
Despite many believing he is having a good season, Modise says he wants to contribute more to the team.
"I feel I could do more to score and create goals for team-mates. But I do my best to be there when the team needs to grind out a result, to try and play an important role for the team," he said.
"I have a great coach and I'm surrounded by so many talented players, so that always helps me to stay on top of my game, to work hard, to grow and to learn all the time.
"When I watch guys like Themba Zwane, Bongani Zungu, Khama Billiat, to name just some of them, I get goose-bumps sometimes."
