Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns shot-stopper Mark Anderson believes Wayne Sandilands is good enough to claim the number one jersey in the absence of Denis Onyango.

Sandilands has been forced to watch his team from the bench this season due to the high level of competition in coach Pitso Mosimane's goalkeeping department, making just four appearances in all competitions thus far.

The former Platinum Stars gloveman is set to replace the injured Onyango, when the Brazilians lock horns with AS Vita in the return leg of their CAF Champions League second-round qualification campaign at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday night.

"I rate Denis very highly but I have got no doubt with Wayne that there will be no problem with him playing at all," Anderson told Goal website.

"It’s not a problem for me. Having worked with Wayne before, it’s not a problem at all to have Denis out."
