Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene has credited head coach Pitso Mosimane for his ability to take pressure off of the playing squad.

After a slow start to the season, in which they won just one of their first four league games, the Brazilians are unbeaten in their last 10 matches in all competitions, winning nine.

Sundowns have moved up to second place in the Absa Premiership table and will face Kaizer Chiefs in the final of the Telkom Knockout competition in December, and Mweene praised Mosimane for protecting his players from the additional pressure that came from a bad start to the campaign.

"One thing I'll give credit to the coach for is that he doesn't put pressure on us. He takes pressure that comes to him, and keeps it to himself," the Zambia international told KickOff.

"As always, he just tells us what to do and we follow his instructions.

"It's not only [the coach] who is under pressure; we are also under pressure. We have to win the Telkom [Knockout] at least because it has been a while since we have been in a final, so this is a chance for us as players too," he concluded.

Sundowns will play Chiefs in the TKO final on December 16 after local football resumes following the Under-23 Africa Cup of Nations taking place in Senegal for the next three weeks.

Kick-off is 18:00.
