Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes his players are geared for their hectic upcoming fixture schedule.
The Premiership leaders face a busy schedule as they will be competing in the Absa Premiership, Nedbank Cup and CAF Champions League in the coming weeks.
The Brazilians have six upcoming fixtures in the April starting with a Champions League second-round clash against AS Vita Club on Saturday.
"It's a big month but I must tell you there was a big month in November. I hope we don't lose again because it's crucial now," Mosimane told KickOff.
"We can't take a loss in Kinshasa, we need to get good results and play smart and clever. And then we go to Polokwane, it's not easy, they eliminated Dikwena. It's a big one and (Jomo) Cosmos is a big one. Those two games are a thorn in the flesh.
"We we have to play four games in 11 days. As I said this programme is not an ideal programme and when I say that people say I start making excuses, no it's a fact.
"In the Champions League we are at 16 and we want to get to the top eight. We are moving slowly.
"The games are getting smaller in the Nedbank, the games are getting smaller in the Champions league, the games are getting smaller in the league."
