Mamelodi Sundowns striker Lebohang Maboe is targeting a strong finish to the season but doesn't want to put extra pressure on the team.

Maboe, who has experienced booing from a section of Downs supporters, admits it's difficult to keep the Masandawana fans satisfied as they have high expectations of their team.

The Brazilians are second in the Absa Premiership, four points behind Kaizer Chiefs with a game in hand, and are aiming to clinch their 10th league title.

Maboe reckons Sundowns have enough quality in the squad as well as in the coaching staff to make it a reality, once the season resumes after the country-wide coronavirus lockdown ends.

"I think we have an experienced coach [Pitso Mosimane] with a lot of experienced players," said Maboe as quoted by DailySun.

"We finished last season very strongly. We don't want to put pressure on ourselves, we just want to take it one game at a time.

"Sundowns are a big team, not just in South Africa but in Africa. Every competition we compete, our fans expect us to win."
