collect maximum points in the Premiership.

Sundowns’ opponents this week, SuperSport United, lifted the
Telkom Knockout trophy on Saturday and Kekana thinks there is the slight
possibility that Matsatsantsa will be complacent when the Premiership giants
lock horns at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday.
"It could go either way as they are motivated but at
the same time they could be still in celebratory mood," Kekana told Soccer
Fixtures between Sundowns and SuperSport are often
fascinating affairs, primarily because it is the Pretoria Derby but also
because both teams have enjoyed considerable success in the Premiership.
Sundowns are the defending champions and SuperSport are
still trying to challenge for their fourth league title.
Just two points separate the teams on the current league
"In football, you don't think about the last result of the
opposition but what you can do on the day," added Kekana, who understands
as well as anybody that SuperSport United are not to be trifled with,
especially while they are under the tutelage of Gordon Igesund.
"So on Wednesday we are going for a win and no matter
what, we want the three points," added Kekana, who actually used to ply
his trade at SuperSport United.
Kekana has won the Premiership title with both teams, so he
knows just how significant this fixture is.
