Cape Town - Highlands Park coach Owen da Gama has hinted that he will park the bus against Mamelodi Sundowns in their Absa Premiership fixture at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday.

Da Gama is understandably wary of a Sundowns side that put five past AmaZulu in the Telkom Knockout on the weekend and has emphasised the importance of not letting Pitso Mosimane's side score early.

"First and foremost, you don't allow Sundowns to score early because it just gives them the confidence and running," Da Gama told .

"We will work hard to try and keep them at bay."

"We know it was a close encounter last time here. We hit the post twice and we lost 2-1 at home. But in saying that, they are a fantastic team and when you play against teams like Sundowns, you grow as a team.

"We will certainly work hard as a technical team and do our best."
