Cape Town - Ramahlwe Mphahlele confirms that he and Mame Niang are eager to put on the Mamelodi Sundowns jersey in the TKO clash.

Preview: Sundowns vs AmaTuks

According to Soccer Laduma, the pair are itching to feature as Sundowns pick up form in the third month of the South African soccer season.

“Niang is also looking forward to the game against Tuks since he also played for them like me,” said Mphahlele.

The 24-year-old reveals that they’re both working hard in order to get a place in the starting XI against the University of Pretoria.

“He’s working hard at training. We have spoken about the match and it will be up to the coach whether we play or not.”

Overall the Twshane teams have met in five matches across all competitions since 2012/13. Sundowns boast an unbeaten record, with three wins and two draws from the quintet of games.

The Brazilians have won two of the three matches in which they have hosted their Pretoria rivals, with the other encounter ending in a draw.

Kick-off is at 17:30 on Saturday, October 4.
