The Brazilians are second in the Premiership standings, but
trail AmaKhosi by 15 points, a massive gap even if they do have a game in hand.
They have been in impressive form of late, however, and are
currently on a 13-match unbeaten league run which includes seven wins and six
While Sundowns failed to land their reported January
transfer window target, Orlando Pirates midfielder Oupa Manyisa, the Chloorkop
outfit still have a huge amount of depth at their disposal with a near clean
bill of health as the season enters the second phase.
Moroka Swallows go into the game having shown some improved
form towards the end of 2014. They ended the year undefeated in three games,
having picked up five points in that period to move to 13th position in the
table, that run coinciding with captain Lefa Tsutsulupa’s return from injury.
The Birds have added just a single player to their squad in
the January transfer period, and will be hoping that former Kaizer Chiefs
development product Edwin Sitaytayi can bang in the goals like he did at
previous clubs Thanda Royal Zulu and Santos.
Neither side have any suspensions for the match, although
Downs have two key players - striker Cuthbert Malajila and Hlompho Kekana, both
on one booking away from a suspension.
The game takes place at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, with kick
off set for 19:30.
