“We will make sure that we beat Chiefs during open play because we avoid going to penalty shoot outs,” said Mudau.
It is obvious why the Sundowns legend wants the game to be settled during open play. On many occasions, the Brazilians have succumbed to the Amakhosi in the shoot-outs after dominating play.
“Everything is going well for us at the moment. There is nothing much coach Trott Moloto did because he has taken over where Gordon Igesund left. The spirit is good and the boys are looking forward to facing Chiefs.”
Bad news for the Brazilians, however, is that Amakhosi coach Muhsin Ertugral has a full book to choose from for the Absa Stadium clash.
Ertugral will have the option of selecting Tinashe Nengomasha for this all important cup tie, as Chiefs look to continue to hold their historic dominance in Cup matches over their Chloorkop-based rivals.
Questions marks over the availability of Gerald Sibeko and Onismor Bhasera’s availability for the game have been done away with and the pair along with Tinashe Nengomasha, who has recovered from an ankle injury scare, will be able to take to the field on Sunday.
According to Amakhosi’s website, Nengomasha was given a training session yesterday to gauge his readiness for Sunday’s match, and after coming through the two hour-long sessions, he then went for a fitness assessment which saw him receive the green light to play.
