Cape Town - Both Khama Billiat and Percy Tau will be walking the suspension tightrope for Mamelodi Sundowns when the Pretoria team hosts Baroka FC on Wednesday night.

'Downs left-back Fares Hachi will be available again after serving his ban.

While Sundowns are doing their all to defend their league title, Baroka are desperate not to be relegated after only one season in the top flight.

They go into the match second from bottom of the standings in 15th, although only three points behind 12th placed Bloemfontein Celtic on a tight table.

Recent form has not been good though, Bakgaga only claiming two points from the last possible nine, while on the other side, Sundowns beat Pirates 2-0 on the weekend after having drawn with Platinum Stars and lost to Bidvest Wits before that.

Sundowns mentor Pitso Mosimane will be feeling positive after being impressed by his team’s showing against the Buccaneers, though he has tried to downplay Downs' title chances.

"I'm happy we won, but we didn’t just win, we played well, we played very well. We got our chances and we finished them," he said on Sunday.
