Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane will be cautious of the in-form Platinum Stars when the two sides meet this coming weekend.
The Brazilians will lock horns against Dikwena in the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals at the Moruleng Stadium on Saturday evening.
Mosimane was anxious following his team’s draw against Allan Freese’s charges and he did not hide the fact that they always face difficulties when playing against a club of Dikwena’s calibre back in August.
"We played against a very good team. They are our 'hoodoo' team… they always give us problems and they never die," Mosimane told the Kick-Off website
"We score first, they always come back. We played them here (Loftus) in the Nedbank Cup (last season) and they came back," he added.
While Sundowns will be looking to end their seven-game win-less run against the Tycoons, Freese’s charges will be looking to keep their momentum going in cup competitions after winning the MTN8 last month.
Stars defeated Maritzburg United 2-0 on their way to the last eight courtesy of Henrico Botes and Robert Ng'ambi strikes.
‘Downs gave Bloemfontein Celtic a 4-0 thumping thanks to Dove Wome, Khama Billiat’s brace and an own goal from Limbikani Mzava.
The game is scheduled to commence at 19:30.
