Pretoria - Following their gruelling goalless stalemate against Chippa United on Tuesday - and Wednesday - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says his players will not be fatigued heading to their much anticipated clash against Cape Town City.
Sundowns shared the spoils with the Chilli Boys in an Absa Premiership encounter played over two days following an unexpected power failure midway through the game on Tuesday evening at Loftus Versfeld.
With the second half of the game played on Wednesday morning, Mosimane insisted that it was a practice match for the Brazilians ahead of their Friday game.
"We can't complain because we only played 45 minutes," said Mosimane.
"It (Chippa game) won't affect our Friday match. It was just like our training match.
"We always train in the morning and regenerate. The Chippa game will not build up any fatigue for our players.
"So there's no need to complain we are professionals. If we complain we'll be just making unnecessary excuses."
The goalless draw ensured no movement in the top half of the Absa Premiership log as Sundowns remained fifth, with United in ninth place.
The Brazilians will square off against the in-form Citizens at the Athlone stadium.
Kick-off is scheduled for 20:00.
