Mamelodi Sundowns

Downs Player Singles Out Mokoena, Mbule As Threats

Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Haashim Domingo has singled out Teboho Mokoena and Sipho Mbule as players to look out for when the DStv Premiership leaders take on their rivals SuperSport United in the Tshwane derby on Wednesday. 

Sundowns were held to a goalless draw by Cape Town City over the weekend and will now host a SuperSport side that has been inconsistent in recent weeks, with disappointing results. 

Domingo has identified Mokoena and Mbule as threats in the middle of the park, while Thamsanqa Gabuza and Bradley Grobler have to be looked after if Sundowns are to continue their unbeaten run this season.

"I expect that it's going to be a direct performance from them in terms of long balls and playing on the second ball. So I think we need to stay very tight, pick up the second ball and establishg play from there. Their midfield will be key, with Mokoena, Mbule - the creative players. And also Gabuza and Grobler upfront. That aerial presence will be key for them," Domingo told the Sundowns media department ahead of the Tshwane derby.

Domingo was named man of the match in Sundowns' draw at City and is looking forward to continuing where he left off.

"It's just to continue where I left off in terms of the fitness. I can build on that and definitely the confidence going into the next one. I am definitely going to take that into the next game. It's important that we get the result in this one. It was difficult to get a result against Cape Town City, but in this one we need to go out there and get the three points.
