Cape Town - Golden Arrows midfielder Kudakwashe Mahachi is convinced the team can pull off another upset against Mamelodi Sundowns at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.

Arrows were the last team to beat Sundowns in domestic football back in September with a 2-1 win.

The Brazilians have since embarked on a 19-game unbeaten run to storm to the top of the PSL table.

Mahachi has set his sights on a double over his former club with Arrows looking to cement a spot in the top eight.

"I'm taking this game as a normal game and I don't have grudges or anything," Mahachi told KickOff.

"I'm prepared to play against my former club. Having said that, it's going to be a nice game and we are looking forward to it as a team. We will push hard to try and win.

"We know they are doing well and they haven't lost in the league in 19 games now, so we need to work hard to get the three points."
