Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfield maestro Khama Billiat believes winning the Telkom Knockout title would be the perfect reward for their outstanding unbeaten run.

Sundowns have been dominant after a nine-game unbeaten streak in all competitions (eight wins and one draw).

The Brazilians also secured a TKO final berth against rivals Kaizer Chiefs at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on December 16.

The skillful Billiat wants Sundowns' impressive displays to culminate in silverware to finish the year on a high.

"I believe that it is really important for us to win this cup. We've started our season really well in the league despite the disappointment in the MTN8, and we are heading in the right channel if you look at the log standings," Billiat told KickOff.

"Winning the Telkom Cup will be a big motivation and confidence booster for the league campaign and also the other cups like CAF and Nedbank Cup next year.

"Preparations have been great. We are ready and everybody knows what is at stake and what is expected from them. Hopefully all will be applied on the day.

"We are really looking forward to the game and it is a blessing for us to be in this final. But we know that for a team like Sundowns, a cup final appearance is not enough but we need to win it as well."

Kick-off is at 18:00.
