Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admits that there is no excuses for fatigue despite the intensity of the Brazilians fixture list.

The African Coach Of The Year highlighted his side's chock-a-block schedule and injuries ahead of the second-leg against the Ugandan champions following their three-game winless streak in the Premiership.

"In South Africa we are playing a game every three days," he said on the club's official website.

"If you track back - this has been the case for five months for us. For us to make an excuse about fatigue is unacceptable.

"It’s normal. It’s not right, but is normal," he added.

Masandawana take a 2-1 lead into the game, but will be without the services of Sibusiso Vilakazi, Denis Onyango and possibly forward Khama Billiat due to injury.

"We are used to this level of intensity, and we cannot use this as an excuse. 

"When we played KCCA in the first-leg, they had about seven days rest and were fresh, and it showed. For Saturday’s game they have had another seven days rest.

"We have had games every three days, and have just come from a league game (against Polokwane City) on Tuesday evening. But we cannot complain.

"When you play three games in seven days you can expect casualties," he concluded.
