Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns striker Katlego Mashego
says he is not putting himself under any sort of pressure to open his goal-scoring account for the Brazilians.
The former Moroka Swallows man is yet to score this season after joining the Pretoria-based outfit at the beginning of the season after a tremendous campaign last season.
“Mahoota” won the Lesley Manyathela golden boot award after grabbing 13 league goals for the Dube Birds and also got an MTN8 winners medal to his name.
The 31-year-old goal poacher also stressed that once he starts scoring for his new team, Sundowns, goals will flow.
“I’m really enjoying my time at Sundowns because we play possession football. I’m not desperate to score my first goal but helping the team do well. When the goals do come, I can assure you that there will be more,” Mashego told the Sundowns website
‘Downs will face Dikwena in the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals at the Moruleng Stadium on Saturday evening.
“I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about Platinum Stars being the hoodoo team for us but that doesn’t bother us at all, because the Sundowns team that will be playing is made up of totally different players and would not have experienced that hoodoo.
“Look, one might also argue that, they (Stars) are on a high especially after winning the MTN8, but that does not guarantee them a straight win against us because we are also unbeaten this season and we also drew against the very same Platinum Stars in the league.”
Mashego is yet to start a game for Pitso Mosimane’s charges this season as the striking department is very competitive this season but has made a few substitute appearances.
The game against Allan Freese's charges will kick off at 19:30.
