The Brazilians made a stuttering start to the new season, winning only one of their four opening matches in the league and were also knocked out early in the MTN8.

They have regained their form and have gone on a three-game winning streak which has seen them make a steady climb up to fourth place in the standings.

Mosimane is pleased with the improvement but has warned against dropping points as it will set them back further in the championship race.

"I worry about what I can control. And for us, I think we have recovered some of the points we lost earlier on," the Sundowns coach said.

"The only problem is faltering against other challengers and the teams we beat last season."

The former Bafana Bafana mentor also raised concerns about his side's growing injury list, which has forced him to make regular squad changes.

"I've got Alje Schut back, but I lost Thabo Nthethe just before the game (on Sunday) as he failed a late fitness test," he added.

"I am trying to push guys like Khama Billiat to be available because I want everyone back by the time we play the Telkom Knockout cup."

Sundowns’ next game is in the Telkom Knockout Challenge when try avoid first round exit against University of Pretoria on Saturday, October 4 at 17:30.
