Cape Town - Serame Letsoaka concedes that he's under severe pressure with his under-performing Bloemfontein Celtic side but isn't worried about Mamelodi Sundown's highly rated 'CBD' trio.

Siwelele have been dismal this season since the appointment of the former Golden Arrows boss, with only one win in 2016, and things won't get easier as they prepare to face the most fearsome attack in the Premiership when they visit the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Sundowns trio of Leonardo Castro, Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly have scored 25 goals in the Premiership this season to lift Pitso Mosimane's team to the top of the league table, but Letsoaka claims they have a plan to deal with them.

"Sundowns may look at this fixture as a walk in the park, get the three points and we are done, but it is not going to be an easy game," the 52-year-old told Goal website.

"For me, I don't see them being any problem for us, we have a plan in place for them. We are just going to take them like any other team and we are going to do what's necessary; we close down all their dangerous areas.

"We are hoping to utilize certain areas they have been conceding and ensure those areas are well taken care of and we will definitely be able to do that."
