Cape Town - After recording successive league wins, Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise believes the Brazilians are on the way to hitting top gear.

READ: Players must be ready - Pitso.

Sundowns went on an 11-match undefeated streak at the end of last season to overhaul what had been a 10-point cushion enjoyed by Kaizer Chiefs, to win the league.

At present, the defending champions find themselves in second position in the standings, although they trail the in-form AmaKhosi by 13 points.

But after having drawn 1-1 with Chiefs at the end of November, The Tshwane club have taken six points from their last two matches, with convincing wins over SuperSport United and Free State Stars.

And Modise feels the Brazilians are starting to find their rhythm after a slow start to the campaign.

"We have won two games convincingly and that is a positive sign. It means we are playing well and want to win matches as always. We are slowly getting there and we can be at our best if we continue working hard," Modise told his official website.

The former Pirates and SuperSport United playmaker is also pleased to have netted two goals in his last three matches for Sundowns.

"Yes, I have been scoring some goals and it feels good. But the important thing is that we play as a team. It does not matter who scores the goals, as long as we scoring and winning games it is all well."
