MAMELODI Sundowns co-mentor Manqoba Mngqithi has conceded that their perfect sheet record is starting to come down in the group and is contrarily influencing their exhibitions.Manqoba Mngqithi Worried Over Clean Sheet Record - iDiski Times

The Tshwane goliaths have gone 13 progressive matches without yielding an objective in the DStv Premiership, further expanding their record for the most perfect sheets. They broke the record recently held by Roger de Sas Wits University, who piled up 10 back to back clean sheets during the 2003-04 mission

. Downs have been significantly more impervious, with their goalless draw against Cape Town City on Saturday prompting a record broadening thirteenth shutout in the association on the run.

Yet, Mngqithi is concerned that his side are presently too centered around keeping a spotless sheet and are not as successful in assault as they ought to be. This thing of clean sheets, as much as its ideal to say you havent yielded in many matches, I think its starting to come down in the group, said Mngqithi. Now 'clean sheets' worry Manqoba

This thing of not yielding is turning into a nervousness factor in case I can put it like that, since now we are restless to attempt to ensure that space and we are not playing uninhibitedly. In a round of football, assuming you surrender then you yield however in case you score more than the adversary, you dominate the match. This thing of clean sheets is great since its piece of our cycle, however its continually going to come down in the group.

In case you are playing a round of football and youre expected not to submit any errors, that is the point at which you submit more. Im not saying I need the group to begin yielding objectives however I think this thing of not having any desire to surrender is making the group play with some nervousness.Bid to keep clean sheets is making players anxious, says Sundowns coach  Mngqithi

We definitely need to ensure that we dont yield and on occasion that causes us to be somewhat excessively protective. That is my anxiety at this stage with this perfect sheet thing. On one side its invigorating yet on the opposite side, Ive got this inclination that its presently wrecking the opportunity of articulation which would give us better outcomes.

Notwithstanding dropping focuses against the Citizens, the Tshwane goliaths remain roosted on top of the Premiership table with 26 focuses from 10 matches. City, alongside Chippa United, stay the main two groups to prevent Sundowns from grabbing most extreme focuses so far this season.Mngqithi worried by cleansheet anxiety
