If there was a team to give Sundowns' winning run a test, on current form, it is Sekhukhune, who have won their last four matches after edging Swallows 1-0 just over a week ago.

Under new coach Brandon Truter, Babina Noko are unbeaten after collecting 13 points from a possible 15 and they have had huge leap on the table, up to fifth and already in contention for continental places.

The visitors will still be without new signing Kamohelo Mokoto, as Siya sources have indicated that the midfielder has not received his international clearance for the Major League Soccer.

Sekhukhune are one of the few teams who have denied Sundowns a three-point haul this season after holding them to a 1-1 draw in the reverse.
