Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele expects a tough battle against Tshwane neighbours University of Pretoria on Wednesday.

The Brazilians came back from behind to claim a 3-1 win over outgoing Absa Premiership champions Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

Mphahlele revealed there are positive spirits at Chloorkop, before adding that Downs are looking forward to continuing on their winning ways.

"The morale in the camp is high at the moment and we are looking forward to continue from where we left off against Chiefs," the 26-year-old told Goal website.

"They are two different teams on the opposite sides of the league, hence tomorrow's game against Tuks will be tougher than the one against Chiefs."

Pitso Mosimane's side need just one win to secure the league title as they currently lead second-placed Bidvest Wits by six points with three games left to play.

"The importance of the game is the same, as all we need are the three points," Mphahlele added.

"At this point Tuks just need a win just as much as we do, which will make this game like a Cup final which we are ready to play and win."
