Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Ronwen Williams has expressed his emotions after keeping his eleventh clean sheet of the league season. 

Williams has started in all domestic games for Sundowns since he was signed in the off-season from SuperSport United. 

The Brazilians extended their winning streak to nine matches after beating Richards Bay 2-0 last Friday and kept a clean sheet for the eleventh time in 15 games, with Williams only conceding in four league games.

"Everything is spot on, when a coach makes so many changes, the guys come in and make a difference, so I would say it's just the spirit among each other," Williams told the club's media department. 

"No one is sulking, everyone knows it's a big team and if you have the opportunity, you have to grab it." 

The Bafana Bafana shot-stopper went on to say that he has to show his worth in moments the team is without the ball, as his teammates are doing most of the defending with their high press. 

"The first game of the season I said I want as many clean sheets as possible, started on a positive note against Cape Town City and ja, it's wonderful, it's a team effort," he said. 

"Eleven now (clean sheets) in the league, it's amazing but it's a collective. It starts on top with a counter press, the guys work so hard and the minimal chances that we do concede that's when I need to step up and show my worth." 

Meanwhile, Sundowns midfielder Themba Zwane also spoke to the club's media and says the games coming thick and fast are preparing them for the CAF Champions League group stages, which resumes in February. 

Zwane had a number of chances against the Natal Rich Boyz and carried on to say that he's disappointed he could not bury at least one or two.

"We're trying to maintain that winning ways and we try to improve in each and every game, we try to take each game as it comes and we try to push ourselves and get ready for CAF Champions League," Zwane said. 

"Every player wants to improve each and every game and try to be more consistent but I'm disappointed with the chances that I got (against Richards Bay), I should have taken maybe or or two.

"But I would not look down, I'll continue working hard and try to convert them in the next game," he added.
