Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes it is the time of the season at which the nerves are tested as the race for the Absa Premiership title comes down to the wire.
The Brazilians appear to be closing in on the PSL championship having beaten Baroka 2-1 on Sunday, and the club currently enjoy a four-point advantage over Orlando Pirates in second place.
Coining a phrase once famously used by Manchester United's former legendary manager Alex Ferguson, Mosimane takes the view that it is the time of the season that nerves begin to jangle.
He told Downs' official website: "I like that stat, that's why the boys say that they like the white jersey. The white jersey doesn't lose a lot. It always wins.
"But what I don't like is going to Cape Town, come back and play three days later and then travel again. You could see against Chippa United that we weren’t the Sundowns that we like. It's squeaky bum time my friend.
"If you don't manage Khama Billiat and Percy Tau we might lose them and this is the time where we need them, along with Sibusiso Vilakazi.
"They are important, they score goals. If they share goals like that, the three up front, it’s always good."
Masandawana next face Absa Premiership champions Bidvest Wits in a league clash at Loftus Versveld Stadium on Saturday.
Kick-off is at 20:15.
