MTN8 champions Platinum Stars have been drawn to play against Mamelodi Sundowns in the quarterfinals of the Telkom Knockout, at home on the weekend of 18-20 October.
Sundowns have expressed a rich vein of form this season, however Dikwena midfielder Patrick Malokase is confident that they can overcome the Chloorkop-based side and book their spot in the semi-finals in search of their second piece of silverware this season.
“We can beat Sundowns. We will be playing at home and we haven't lost a game this season (at home), and we won't start with this one. You remember we beat them in the Nedbank Cup quarterfinals at their home last season, so what can stop us this time around?
“They are playing very well and they have a good squad but we are well motivated and we want another trophy. This draw favours us,” Malokase told Soccer-Laduma after Monday night’s draw.
