Kaizer Chiefs right-back Ramahlwe Mphahlele says his energetic displays are down to following the instructions of coach Steve Komphela.
Mphahlele has impressed for Amakhosi in their five-game winning streak, most recently claiming man-of-the-match honours in the 1-0 win over Highlands Park last weekend.
'Rama' insists he is simply following orders.
"I follow the philosophy of the coach and I do what he wants me to do. If he wants to me to go up and down I'll do it," said the 27-year-old, who skippered Mamelodi Sundowns to league honours in 2015/16 before switching allegiance to the Soweto giants.
"In terms of me going up and down, that is how we play and the coach wants us to go and up down, and we've got to do it.
"Today's game, if you look, it's all about running with a lot of energy and what else can we do? We've to do what we have to do."
Chiefs, who are a point ahead of Cape Town City at the summit after 18 games, next visit Ajax Cape Town at Athlone Stadium on Saturday night (20h15).
Ajax today confirmed the fixture will go ahead after it was initially in doubt due to security concerns at the venue.
