Laffor relishing Chiefs clash

Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Anthony Laffor says the entire team are relishing the chance to get back to the business of the PSL football when they face Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday.

According to the website, South Africa's top-flight division had gone on break in December ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, but with the tournament coming to an end on Sunday the country's focus returns to the domestic league.

The Brazilians had struggled for results this season prior to Pitso Mosimane's appointment as head coach, but they resume the campaign against Amakhosi at Loftus Stadium on Tuesday with a new lease on life, and former SuperSport United ace Laffor is eagerly anticipating the encounter.

"The team is looking forward to the match against Kaizer Chiefs, not just because it's one of the bigger matches but because we have been really working hard, preparing for the second half of the season," he told Downs' official website.

Sundowns have spent the last few weeks sharpening their minds and bodies at a training camp, and Laffor feels the recent rigorous regime can only benefit the squad.

He added: "The AFCON break afforded us the opportunity to work on our tactical game and grasp coach Pitso's philosophy.

"With the tightness of the schedule ahead of us there won't be enough time to work on tactics and fitness at the same time.

"Sometimes we will only have one or two days in between matches, hence I believe our mid-season camp was a great success."
