SPHELELE MKHULISE CONFIDENTLY BACKS HIS SIDE AHEAD OF ENCOUNTER AGAINST AMAZULU FC.

Mamelodi Sundowns will be back in the touchline when they travel to KwaZulu-Natal to do face AmZulu FC on Wednesday evening at the King Zwelithini Stadium. Speaking to Downs’ midfielder, Sphelele Mkhulise, he stated the readiness of the team and what they are expecting from their opponents ahead this encounter.

“We are expecting a difficult game against Amazulu because they didn’t have a good game over the weekend, so they will want to go all out and deliver an exceptional performance. We are also ready for the challenge as we also did not achieve the expected results over the weekend,” he said.

The Brazilians have been comfortably sitting on top the table, with a few games behind, and according to Mkhulise, will be looking to stretch their advantage in the tally by ensuring that they collect maximum points in their upcoming encounters.

“We want to stretch the gap when it comes to points in the league. There are a few teams that are slightly behind us, so we will try to ensure that they don’t surpass us,” Mkhulise stated.

Similarly to the visitors, Usuthu come from a defeat over the weekend and will be looking to fix their mistakes in this meeting and finish strong. The DStv Premiership reigning champions are weary of the wounded opponent and Mkhulise suggests that even though it won’t be an easy game, his side remains confident as they have done their analysis on the team.

“Their run has not been that great in the league, so heading into this encounter, they will want to go all out and redeem themselves through beating us. They are also playing home, which will boost their confidence. We will however not allow them to walk away with the three points because we are also looking to collect the maximum points. We have laid some objectives so we will ensure that we have a great game and win,” he said.

We are aware that their striker, Sede Dion, has been doing very well. He has been scoring goals for them, so he is the one player we have to pay close attention to,” Mkhulise continued.

Mkhulise concluded by encouraging the Yellow Nation to come out in numbers and make their way to the stadium to support the team. He also promised them an exciting and entertaining game of football that will end with them coming out victorious. He said: “we are asking our beautiful Sundowns supporters to come out in numbers at the stadium tomorrow to support us. We will make sure that you watch a beautiful game of football, the shoe, shine and piano, and win this encounter for you.”
