Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana defender Fabian McCarthy is undecided who will be victorious in Sunday's crunch Absa Premiership clash between Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs.

McCarthy played for both clubs in a distinguished career in the South African top-flight and praised the head coaches of both teams.

The encounter at Loftus is a top of the table clash as the sides go head to head for the first time in league action this season.

McCarthy told Goal: "For me, you can see the two coaches have plans and the fact that they are sitting at the top of the log table is by no fluke, mistake or luck, but because of the hours they put in their work.

"They work hard over and above what we see on matchday. I know Middendorp, I have worked with him and he is someone who plans very well.

"Coach Pitso's work ethic and passion speak volumes, I expect a thrilling game on Sunday.

"You can see fire and passion in Pitso's eyes whenever things are not going well, he is driven and has the hunger to win.

"It's just difficult to put my head on the block for his one."

The match will kick off at 15:30 on Sunday.
