Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes his side will be underdogs when they come up against Kaizer Chiefs in their Premiership encounter on Saturday night.

Mosimane was awarded the Coach of the month for February beating off competition from Eric Tinkler of Cape Town City, Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt and Chiefs mentor Steve Komphela.

In what could be seen as possible mind-games, the Brazilians boss highlighted the magnitude of the game, in addition to citing Chiefs' nine-game unbeaten streak in the league as a wary factor for his side.

"It’s a big game, we’re playing Kaizer Chiefs. And to make it worse we’re playing at the FNB Stadium," he told TMG Sport.

"But all that’s important is to try and get three points and it’s not going to be easy because at this point in time we are the underdogs.

"Because Chiefs have had a very good run comparatively in their league games this year. So they have an advantage in that space.

"But you know how football is. It’s what happens on the day.

"So we will tread carefully. We will respect the game.

"It’s not going to be easy but we will try and do our best as usual," he concluded.

The action gets underway at 20:15.
