Sundowns want semi-final spot

BY NATALI IVERSON - OCTOBER 8, 2014

Mamelodi Sundowns striker, Katlego Mashego, has said that his team needs to be on great form when they face AmaZulu during their Telkom Knockout quarter-finals game, if they want to progress to the semi-finals of the competition.

Sundowns will host Usuthu in three weeks time, after the international break.

Amazulu had a poor start to the 2014/15 Premier Soccer League (PSL) season, but Mashego has said that his team should not underestimate their opponents if they want to play a solid game.

"It’s going to be a difficult game for us against AmaZulu," said Mashego.

"We need to prepare ourselves a lot for them if we really want to beat them. That I am so sure about and we want to go to the semi-finals of this competition.

"So we must first do our homework and hopefully it will work out well for us."

Sundowns managed to beat arch-rivals TUKS  2-1 on Saturday, with midfielders, Elias Pelembe and Themba Zwane each scoring a goal in the game, pushing Sundowns to the next stage of the competition.

The venue will be confirmed by the PSL cup committee for the Amazulu clash soon.
