Pitso: It Is Not A Nice Place To Go…

Pitso Mosimane shared his reaction to drawing Highlands Park in the quarter-final of the Nedbank Cup competition, pointing out that not too many people come away with a victory in Tembisa.

The quarter-finals of the competition will kick off next month, March 14-15 and while Mamelodi Sundowns are eyeing a spot in the semi-finals, a tough trip to Makhulong Stadium awaits them.

The Lions of the North kicked Kaizer Chiefs out in the last 16 of the competition, after defeating the Soweto giants on penalties in Tembisa.

Now, adding to their tough schedule, campaigning both domestically and in Africa, the Brazilians will have to make the trip to Makhulong, twice in one month; in the Nedbank Cup and the Absa Premiership.

“It is forever going to be a difficult game, you know Highlands are a tough team, you need to be in good physical condition or shape to play Highlands and you don’t need to go 120 minutes with them, they are a tough team, so especially at home, it is not a nice place to go because not too many people come out with a victory,” Mosimane told the media after the draw.

“But it is the way it is, it is the draw, so you’ve got to accept that – if Tembisa is an easy place to go, then why are not many people coming back from that place? So they are a strong team, they just won a big game in the Nedbank Cup, so you need to be mentality ready because it is going to be a very physical game,” he added.
