Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has warned his side against complacency as they gear up for Saturday's CAF Champions League preliminary-round clash against the relatively unknown St Michel.

The Brazilians departed for the Seychelles on Wednesday with a full-strength squad to face what Mosimane described as a "closed book" in St Michel on Valentine's Day.

The Tshwane giants have, however, learned that their upcoming opponents are a fierce attacking force after consulting with Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League side How Mine, who lost to the Seychellois in a recent friendly.

Speaking ahead of the game, Mosimane said: "They (St Michel) are closed book. They are not on TV and how are we going to know about them?

"I sent Mike Ntombela there and he saw a few things. I asked the guys in Zimbabwe with the team called How Mine; they played against them... How Mine lost in Seychelles. They warned us that the team in Seychelles is attacking like nothing.

"It's an artificial pitch, you know the story. But it's no excuses. We said we want to play in the Champions league and we can't complain."
