Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane maintains that Bidvest won’t be a walkover on the weekend adding that the Students need to be respected for the team that they are.
There is no doubt that Masandawana would want to secure maximum points on the weekend, but despite being on a winning streak in the Absa Premiership, Mosimane is aware that Wits will not make it easy for the Brazilians to extend their lead at the top of the standings.
“You have got to give Wits a very good respect, if you look at SuperSport (against Orlando Pirates), I knew that it is going to be a tough one because look at SuperSport when they played us, they were not playing very well but we couldn’t even beat them, we came from behind to draw. It is SuperSport United, the personnel they have there is Dean Furman, Clayton Daniels, (Aubrey) Modiba, they are a good team,” Mosimane told the media.
“The challenge is, with Wits, you never know which team pitches, (you) never know. Look at the line-up over the last three games. It is not (the) first time, Gavin (Hunt) changes the team today and tomorrow and he is one coach who can do that and gets it right, he isn’t afraid to change. He can change five and he gets it right, he does that, his line-up is never consistent but whenever he does it, he gets it right.
“Not (just) the personnel, even the formation, you never know when it’s three at the back, five at the back, or it is a four. So whatever comes, comes, you will only know when it's on the pitch because even on the team sheet you keep guessing,” he added.
Sundowns will host Wits at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Saturday, April 14 at 18h00.
