Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela says it's "squeaky bum time" again as the Premiership title race enters the final third.
Mamelodi Sundowns are currently leading the way with 34 points from 18 games - four points clear of Cape Town City at the summit.
Chiefs are a further point off the pace, while Maritzburg United and Orlando Pirates are only seven points adrift.
Amakhosi will host Sundowns at FNB Stadium on Saturday night (20h15) looking to send a statement to their rivals.
"Yeah, we said it last week, we said it's game on and indeed it is game on. It's showtime all the way. It is that time of the year. Last year they called it squeaky bum time, it is," said Komphela, who is under pressure to deliver silverware at Naturena in the final year of his three-year contract at Naturena.
"It's going to be very interesting. Sundowns are doing well, we are also hitting some form, we are getting goals, we are scoring.
"And this is a big team. One thing people must not forget, this team is big. We do not get surprised by a positive run. But we just get angry when it's not coming. So that when we are winning, to us it's normal. The only thing is when we draw, because to us a draw is a loss, then we get a bit edgy. But a win, a win is normal at Chiefs, it is what we get paid for."
Komphela will be minus the suspended Joseph Molangoane against the Brazilians following the wingback's dismissal in the 2-1 win at Baroka last weekend.
