Pitso readying Sundowns for Enyimba test

Cape Town - Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says they will take a direct approach against Enyimba in their CAF Champions League clash at Lucas Moripe Stadium next week.

The Brazilians were recently brought back into the competition after Congolese outfit AS Vita were disqualified for fielding an ineligible player.

Despite opening their Group B campaign in the  with a 2-0 away victory over ES Setif in Algeria last week, Mosimane feels his side could have done more, before crediting Downs' physical trainer Kabelo 'KB' Rangoaga for getting the players ready in the off-season.

"You must remember that we only trained for two days effectively, but credit to KB and credit to the boys who showed that they are up to the task," Mosimane told the club's website.

"Our preparation (for the clash against ES Setif) was not aggressive, but we were clear in our mind that we had nothing to lose. As a result, there was less pressure and less stress and we will take this same attitude forward.

"It was only on the last day of our preparations that we saw some strong work. But as you saw, a player like (Hlompho) Kekana was not at his best, organisationally and tactically and did not play the crucial passes that we expect of him."
