Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane will be taking a cautious approach when they tackle Bloemfontein Celtic in an Absa Premiership clash on Wednesday.

Sundowns have already beaten Phunya Sele Sele this season when they beat their opponent 3-0 in the MTN8 quarter-final earlier this month.

Mosimane though knows it will be a different ball game away from home and says teams are getting stronger.

The Masandawana mentor said: "This league is becoming a different league.

"This is the story of last year, anybody can beat anybody. You can't go and say that you are going to win in Bloemfontein.

"You can't just win in Bloemfontein. Highlands beats Pirates, they go to Thohoyandou and the score is different.

"Chippa got a point from us and they go to Arrows it's a totally different story. This football is unbelievable."

In their only home game so far this campaign, Celtic smashed Golden Arrows 5-0.
