Sundowns to Pirates: They Must Give Us Points

With one more game left in their first cycle of the season, Mamelodi Sundowns are determined to get the three points they need to achieve the number of points they set out to collect after every five matches.

Orlando Pirates currently stand in their way of the maximum they require to reach 13 points after the first five matches of the season, with the two clubs set to face-off at Orlando Stadium on Saturday. 

Sundowns have started the season with three wins and a draw and the technical team has emphasized the importance of collecting the three points to stay on track with their targets for the season.

"What we've emphasized as the technical team is taking care of the process. The process is the number of points we want to achieve in each cycle. Whoever happens to become an opponent in that space, we focus on that in the space of making sure that we achieve our desired targets. Pirates is that team that must give us the points that can help us to achieve our ultimate target," Mngqithi told the Sundowns media department

"The issue of anxiety, we have tried to kill that by focusing more on the process and making sure that three points is the same, be it against Pirates, Baroka or TS Galaxy. Let's just make sure we get the points which can help us achieve our ultimate targets. The players have responded well over a number of games."
