Laffor: Sundowns will attack

Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Anthony Laffor believes attack will be the best form of defence when they welcome Mpumalanga Black Aces to Loftus Stadium on Wednesday evening.

According to the football411 website, the Brazilians head into this week's encounter sitting three points clear at the top of the PSL standings, albeit having played a game more than second-placed Kaizer Chiefs, who travel to Polokwane City in a simultaneous kick off.

Black Aces have proved the surprise package of this season's Premiership campaign, with the newly promoted side currently joint fourth in the standings, while their reverse fixture against Sundowns saw the minnows emerge with a 1-0 win in December.

And Laffor believes Downs will need to be at their very best to prevent Aces from pulling off another shock result this week.

"The longer the game goes without us scoring, the more Aces players will grow in confidence and we don't want that. We know their venom as we have tasted it before," Laffor told his club's official website.

"Throughout this season our philosophy has been putting teams on the back foot from the first whistle and there's no way we are going to change that now just for Aces.

"They might be giant killers but they can expect the same treatment as the other teams we have played with in the PSL thus far."

He continued: "Yes, they (Black Aces) have been very impressive of late and they have never been a bad side, but so have we. It's hard to ignore our good run but right now there's much more to fight for.

"We want to consolidate a place at the top of the log and they want to continue their giant killing spree."
