Johannesburg - Pitso Mosimane is delighted to see three of his Bafana Bafana stars enjoying game time ahead of the crucial clash with Egypt.

South Africa are scheduled to face the Pharaohs on March 26th in an African Nations Cup qualifier, but the defending continental champions have asked CAF to postpone the fixture due to the political turmoil endured by Egypt.

Bafana have received no updates on the fixture and Mosimane is continuing with his preparations.

"Nothing has changed from our side, and we are busy ­ preparing for this game because it is the biggest clash of my tenure so far," said the coach.

A positive sign for the national team is Kagisho Dikgacoi's move to Crystal Palace, which has seen him notch up much-needed minutes on the pitch.

Star striker Katlego Mphela has returned to Mamelodi Sundowns after going AWOL and has scored twice in two games. Davide Somma, meanwhile, is still progressing well at Leeds and has been honing his skills in front of the sticks.

"Somma is scoring and I am also happy that KG is playing regularly now and 'Killer' (Mphela) is back at Sundowns as well," said Mosimane.

"Things are looking positive for the team."
