Percy Tau believes that Mamelodi Sundowns are in a good position to push further and end the season on top of the table and clinch the Absa Premiership title.

The Brazilians are five points clear from second placed team Orlando Pirates and look on course to holding on towards the end of the season. They recently drew with title contenders Kaizer Chiefs and beat Cape Town City who are also title contenders to maintain the distance between themselves and their competitors for the league title.

Tau who has been a very instrumental figure in attack for Sundowns this season with his stellar and consistent performances is convinced that his team have learned from previous situation like these one to be able to absorb the pressure that comes with challenging for the league title and rally on till the end.

“Last season we lost the league in our last three games. We are trying to improve on that and we are much stronger now. We have new signings that are helping us so hopefully we will work hard and win the league. We need to keep on going. We are still going to have tough games,” said Tau.

The young prospect was doing the most for the Brazilians in their 1-0 victory over Mamelodi Sundowns as he showed his importance once again by providing Khama Billiat with a sublime assist which left tongues wagging. He will look to continue his form when they travel to Cape Town All Stars on Friday night in Nedbank Cup duties.
