Cape Town - The Metro police of Buffalo City Municipality in the Eastern Cape have confirmed that security has been improved for their Premiership clash with Mamelodi Sundowns.

Following the 6-0 thumping of the Buccaneers, Pitso Mosimane's men arrive in Mdantsane in top form against Dan Malesela's side, who've struggled for consistency this season.

"This is our hunting ground, we enjoy it a lot here, we don't throw points away - we come here to collect points and move up the table."
