Downs preparing for 'tough' Bucs match


Soon after arriving from the Free State today, Sundowns’ players made their way to Chloorkop to start preparations for the big game at the weekend.

Coach Gordon Igesund told Kick Off that there was no time to relax and that they were pushing hard for their next game against Pirates.

_quote“My boys gave a good performance and deserved to have scored at least two more goals. It was tough playing away and Celtic has tremendous support at home but I am happy that we managed to get maximum points away from home. I want to thank my players for their efforts.

“We are back at training for the game against Pirates and still have to look at injuries. Some of the players that missed yesterday’s game due to suspension will be back in contention for the starting line up on Sunday.”

Defenders Mbulelo Mabizela and Oscar Ntwagae will be available for selection after serving their yellow card suspension.

Tickets for the game are already available at Computicket and Shoprite Checkers and both Daniel Mudau and Mickey Modisane, from Sundowns and Pirates respectively, have urged soccer fans to get their tickets ahead of the match in Pretoria.
