Downs Outline Zambia Trip

Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed that they will be heading to Zambia today to take part in a four-team tournament, which gets underway tomorrow.

With Sundowns starting the second-half of their season with a top-of-the-table clash with title-rivals Kaizer Chiefs - who leapfrogged the Brazilians into top spot - coach Pitso Mosimane is looking to get his troops prepared.

Katlego Mashego,Tebogo Langerman,Bryce Moon and Hlompho Kekana will miss the trip as they are currently with Bafana Bafana ahead of the start of the CAF African Nations Championships (CHAN), which starts in Cape Town on Saturday. Katlego Mphela, who recently signed a pre-contract with Kaizer Chiefs, is reportedly also not part of the travelling party.

A statement on the club's official website confirmed the trip as well as the schedule for the event:

"Mamelodi Sundowns will be heading to Zambia on Friday to take part in a four team tournament which will start on Saturday.

"The first game for Downs on Saturday sees them take on Power Dynamos at 16h00, and next Wednesday at 17h00, Downs will play their second game against Donbosco F.C who are in the top three of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s domestic league. On Saturday the 18th at 16h00, Downs will play their final game against Zesco F.C.

"The rest of the games will take place at the legendary Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.

"The team will then return home on Sunday and continue with the preparations for the all-important opener against Kaizer Chiefs on January 23 at Loftus Stadium."
