Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene says he expects the competition in the Premiership to get even tougher as the second half of the season fast approaches.

With 14 of their 30 league matches completed, Downs are in third spot on the standings, where they trail pace-setting Kaizer Chiefs by 13 points.

Speaking to the Sowetan ahead of this weekend's Tshwane derby clash with the University of Pretoria, Zambian shot stopper Mweene warned his Sundowns team-mates that they have to continuously find ways to stay ahead of their opposition.

"It's not easy in the PSL this season. You cannot go into a game thinking you will come away with maximum points. It is tricky already, and I can only imagine what the second round is going to be like," said the AFCON winner, who was the man-of-the-match in the Brazilians' 1-1 midweek draw with Orlando Pirates.

"That is when it is more difficult to pick up points,” Mweene continued, “because teams are more organised and know which players are dangerous when they face the opposition.

"Teams make sure they have a solid plan for you and I think the games will be more technical and tactical, even when you are playing at home."
