Sundowns got back to winning ways in the Absa Premiership on Sunday after defeating SuperSport United, but the victory did come at cost for the defending champions.

Thapelo Morena was taken off in the second half, with Mosimane confirming it was a groin injury.

"It's a big one to lose Thapelo, I need Thapelo on that match, an away game. It's a game that we need to win it, if we win it we're number one on our group, we avoid the big boys it's a big game for us," Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.

"I was worried that we're playing this game [SuperSport] [in between], but the boys showed good mental strength, they were disciplined, they passed well. If you control the game, I don't know what percentage was ball possession. If it's 60/40, 70/30, then the opponent must score from 30 percent and they scored from 30 percent, that's all.

"He played with a groin but he said he was okay. I think he'll miss that one. But when you have 'Mshishi' [Themba Zwane] back we look also better,"
