Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns forward Themba Zwane says the club have not yet secured passage into the first round of the CAF Champions League despite a 2-0 advantage over Leones Vegetarianos.

The Brazilians are in a strong position in the Preliminary Round of the competition having beaten the minnows from Equatorial Guinea last week.

Striker Jeremy Brockie and Zwane got the vital away goals meaning the Brazilians are in a good position for the second-leg at Loftus Stadium on Wednesday.

Nonetheless, the Bafana Bafana international takes the view that getting an early goal against Vegetarianos would settle the nerves and allow the side to play their best football in the encounter.

He told reporters: "We are not comfortable with 2-0. We need to get another [goal], so that we can relax and play our game.

"The game is very important for us to win because we are not done yet. We know that they are going to come at us, so we need to be patient and try convert the chances we are going to create.

"We know that we are going to create chances, so we must convert them. At the moment we are struggling to convert goals, so we need to work hard to improve."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
