Lakay brushes off ‘hot and cold’ form


Left back Lyle Lakay has assured the Mamelodi Sundowns faithful that the team will work hard to enjoy consistent results.

Speaking to the media this week, the 28-year-old, who can also play as a winger, sounded confident ahead of Saturday’s clash against Golden Arrows at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.

“I would say it’s nothing new. I think last year we also went through a patch like this and if you remember, I think we were drawing games and we also lost you know,” Lakay recalled.

“I think lots of teams go through it like you know during the season and hopefully for us now we getting it early and we can turn it around and then obviously go on our run that we usually do.”

Downs will be missing Sibusiso Vilakazi, who’s suffered a foot injury. Themba Zwane is also missing (hamstring strain).

Lakay continued: “If you know, close to December normally this time when we start with the CAF Champions League we start going on our (good) run so like I said it’s nothing.”

In a recent match, Arrows beat Sundowns 3-2 in a league clash at the same venue.

The Brazilians struggled to adjust to the conditions at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium which saw them make quite a few defensive errors on the rainy afternoon.

“Like I said we just have to continue with what we do and give a bit more in the game to break the ice and eventually start winning,” Lakay stated.
