Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi is optimistic that his troops will bounce back from their Nedbank Cup disappointment when they travel to KwaZulu Natal to face AmaZulu in a top-of-the-table DStv Premiership clash on Wednesday.
‘The Brazilians’ exited the Nedbank Cup after suffering a defeat to Tshakhuma FC in the semifinal at Loftus Versfeld on Sunday afternoon.
“We know what is going to happen in Durban, it is not going to be an easy one. We still have to fight,” said Mngqithi.
‘Usuthu’ are unbeaten in their last 15 league matches and have won six in a row, a club record. They are in second place, six points behind Sundowns, having played two games more.
“Our conditioning department is working very hard to make sure our players are in a good space to be able to come to the game against AmaZulu and deliver.
“Our players know they have a responsibility in all of these fixtures. We play these matches because of their success,” added the Sundowns coach.
“They keep doing well and they must take the dose that comes with doing well.”
