Cape Town - Pitso Mosimane has played down Mamelodi Sundowns' inability to score in their goalless draw with Ajax Cape Town on Wednesday evening.

The Brazilians were lucky to walk away with a point from Athlone Stadium as their busy end-of-season schedule looks to be taking it's toll on Mosimane's squad.

Sundowns hold a four-point lead over Bidvest Wits with four games remaining in the Premiership, and Mosimane feels they can still afford to drop one or two further points and feels it is "normal" for them to have jangling nerves as the pressure piles on.

"As long as you are in the lead, it's okay," Mosimane said after the match.

"You can still afford to drop one or two more. You have to be smart when you get to the finish line. I've never seen a marathon runner come to the finish line with the biggest smile and all of that. 

"They look stressed and they all want to finish. So we are stressed, it's normal, it's football, but we are good.

"It was a very difficult game, we've got to think smart and not emotional. You could see in the first half, they missed out three chances in front of the goals but we also had our chances."
