Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says rotating players is imperative for his side to sustain their challenge for silverware as the season draws to a close.

The Brazilians are set to play six games in eleven days - which includes the Nedbank Cup quarter-final match against Orlando Pirates, the second-leg of their CAF Champions League clash with AS Vita and a date with Kaizer Chiefs on April 30.

"At this moment it is not looking good because we have a few injuries but hopefully we can get a few guys back for the other games," Mosimane said in a press conference.

"You have to try and rotate the team. But then rotation of the team shouldn't affect the balance and effectiveness of the team to give results because if it does then it is not good.

"If you can (rotate) and still win it is okay. We have used other players in the Nedbank Cup and been fortunate to win so same as when we went to Dolisie (against AC Leopards)," he added.

"If you win and you are using everybody then it is the best thing but if you compromise the fluidity of the team and the results then it is not good."
