Western Province, looking to maintain momentum as the Currie Cup season reaches the halfway mark, must guard against complacency.
Coming off an impressive win over the table-topping Lions, the men from Cape Town face a Pumas team still smarting from an 80-point hammering at the hands of the Free State Cheetahs last week.
However, they won't be taking anything for granted, according to WP backline coach Robbie Fleck.
Speaking to this website on Wednesday Fleck said the Cheetahs' 80-16 hammering of the hapless Pumas is not a true reflection of the Witbank-based team's capabilities.
"They ran the Blue Bulls, Sharks and Lions close," Fleck said of games where the Pumas were within one score of a win.
"They struggled against the Leopards and Cheetahs, but they almost always put up a good showing against the top teams. In Witbank the Pumas are also a very different team.
"We will have to keep our feet on the ground,"Fleck told this website.
While Province were happy with the result of their encounter with the Lions, a win Fleck described as a "massive game", the visitors have to take that confidence ahead into the Pumas and keep the momentum going into this Round Seven fixture.
The other aspect is that WP will continue to tweak their game plan, from the defence-orientated style they played in Super Rugby to a more expansive game.
"Yes, we have tweaked [the tactics] a bit since the Super Rugby season," Fleck said.
"We are playing a bit more expansive, and while there is more 'tweaking' to be done, I feel we are moving in the right direction."
The one aspect Fleck feels they still need to work on is converting the opportunities they create into points.
"We are starting to get the balance right between attack and defence," he added.
* Meanwhile WP will take a 24-man squad to Witbank.
Wimpie van der Waldt and Stephan Greeff will also travel to Witbank as potential bench players.
Nizaam Carr and De Kock Steenkamp did not train with the team, and while both are expected to be fine for the game on Friday, Fleck said a call would only be made closer to the game.
