SuperSport and Sundowns lock horns at 15h00 tomorrow in the first round of the 2016 MTN8 competition, with the first Tshwane Derby of the campaign happening at Loftus Stadium in Pretoria.

Baxter spoke very highly of his rival earlier in the week during the build up to the encounter, and he believes that if Matsatsantsa can beat the reigning Absa Premiership champions, they have every chance of going all the way.

Speaking to the media, Baxter said, “We’re playing the best team in the country now, and if we can knock them over then you can imagine the confidence going through the player’s veins going into the next MTN8 game. It’s only a couple of games and then you’re in the final, so they’re all finals.

“If we knock Sundowns over then we have every chance of going all the way, but this one is a tough one, isn’t it. We have our full focus on it, and it’s a great possibility for us.”
