Ndengane: Downs Don’t Scare Us

Bloemfontein Celtic defender, Alfred Ndengane, says Mamelodi Sundowns’ red-hot attacking form does not scare them, as the two teams prepare to do battle at Loftus Stadium tonight.

Coming into this game, the Brazilians are on a fantastic run of six wins in a row, and will be high in confidence when they come up against Celtic at home. Pitso Mosimane’s side are chasing the league title, and will hope for a slip-up from Kaizer Chiefs against Mpumalanga Black Aces tonight, so they could move to the top of the league table for the first time this year.

However, Ndengane, who joined Phunya Sele Sele in the January transfer window on loan from National First Division side, FC Cape Town, says they will not make things easy for the Chloorkop-based side. The defender has done relatively well on the occasions he has been given a chance by Ernst Middendorp, and could well get a starting berth tonight.

He revealed, “We’ve prepared well for this game. We travelled to Tshwane yesterday and just took a bit of a walk today. However, we are going to focus on ourselves and not on them and the fact that they are chasing the league. They are on form but, in my opinion, they are not that strong. If you check, they are very good in attack and showed that against Chiefs. They were the more attacking side in that game. But we are not that much worried about them because, if you look, in our last three games, we've only conceded two goals and we can even do better than that.”

The two sides have met twice already this season, with Sundowns winning 3-1 in the first round of the league campaign and then going on to claim another victory in the Telkom Knockout Last 16 by 4-0.
