Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says they are not looking at the top of the Absa Premiership standings.
The Absa Premiership and CAF Champions League winner says his team did not do well in the first block of the league, but will pick up the pieces.
Despite having a busy year due to the continental club competition including their domestic schedule, Sundowns managed to finish 2016 at number seven with 19 points.
However, 'Jingles' says they are yet to panic as far as their league title defence is concerned, saying they are on the right track.
“Let me tell you something, we have our target and we have our blocks and we group teams in five,” he explains to KickOff.com.

“For us to get 71 points last season, we didn’t do well in the first block.
“This year in the first block we got three points more and in the second block we are still on par … we need one more game to win and then we are in fifth, ahead of our program.
“We don’t look at what is going to happen at the top, we are going with the number of blocks of games we play and that is the process - the product will look after itself.
“If you start looking at the top and say ‘how many other teams got points?’, you are putting stress on yourself, because I can see some people put a bit of pressure and stress on themselves and they want to go away as quickly as possible … but you know how football is.”
