CAPE TOWN - Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras captain Justin Ontong says it's all about peaking at the right time in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge.

The Cape side currently top the log with two round robin games to go and a win against the bizhub Highveld Lions tonight could secure a home final for the Cobras.

Ontong says it's up to them to do the job now in the important stage of the competition.

"There are two massive games coming up for us. We can't leave it to other teams or depend on other results to go our way. We've got to make sure that we win our last two games and we get a home final."

Ontong says they need to be focused.

"We're not safe yet, so we have to make sure that we focus on the next two games. We want to put in the performances that we need, and not have to worry about the performances of other teams that are out of our control."

The Lions are currently bottom of the log, but Cobras coach Paul Adams says it will be a mistake to underestimate them.

"There's no complacency at the moment in the squad, because a sleeping lion is still a dangerous one. It's very important that we stay focused on what we need to do and what we need to achieve over this next week."
