Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces coach Muhsin Ertugral is relishing pitting his wits against Sundowns boss Pitso Mosimane at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday night.

Sundowns currently the lead the pack in the Absa Premiership with ten games remaining in the season, and boast the best attack as well as the best defence in the division.

Aces, who trail the table-topping Downs by ten points, will be hoping to keep themselves in the hunt for the league title with a positive result against Sundowns.

And Ertugral is expecting a good game, although he admits he may be forced to employ a defensive approach in a bid to nullify the attacking threat of Mosimane's men.

"I have never experienced a fear factor when playing against Sundowns. Why fear?" Ertugral was quoted as saying by KickOff.

"It is a nice game to watch, Pitso [Mosimane] wants to play and he doesn't want people to sit back and park the bus or park aeroplanes.

"He speaks every time about parking aeroplanes. We don't park aeroplanes, we attack. It's going to be a nice game to watch and a strategic game.

"He is also doing his homework very well, he is a great coach. I love that competition, it's nice."

He added: "We exactly know how Sundowns play. They have similar players to Pirates and we need to be careful how we approach the game, but if necessary we will park the bus no problem."
