Pitso: The bus is going to be parked

Mamelodi Sundowns (TEAMtalk)

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is convinced Chicken Inn will 'park the bus' in Saturday's CAF Champions League clash at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Sundowns will have to overturn a 1-0 scoreline if they are to advance to the first round qualifying round of Africa's top-tier tournament.

"They play like what we saw against Golden Arrows, with speedy wingers," Mosimane said.

"Like Khama Billiat and Cuthbert Malajila play.

"They're Zimbabweans. They're quick off the mark. They'll try to catch us on a counter-attack. It's a risky game. We need to bring the ball up.

"Obviously the bus is going to be parked, I can guarantee you that. We will need to move around it. We need two goals to win. We need more resources and the right mentality. We need to push."

Despite boasting a star-studded side, Mosimane has bemoaned the loss of some of his star players to injuries.

Leonardo Castro missed the 2-1 win over Mpumalanga Black Aces because of a tight hamstring. Castro could make way for Malajila on Saturday, while Mogakolodi Ngele is also back from an injury.

"We will get Ramahlwe Mphahlele in two weeks, we need him," Mosimane added. "We have Ngele and Anthony Laffor back. Leo will be back soon.

"Bongani Zungu isn't going to come back now. When you lose five players like that, they're influential players at Sundowns. We are getting depleted."
