Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has admitted that the club face a hectic run of matches as the second half of the 2016/17 season unfolds.
The Brazilians have a number of games to make up on the rest of the Premiership due to their commitments in winning the CAF Champions League last year.
"We looking at this game and Orlando Pirates is the next game. Arendse has the yellow I don't know what the referee said he was talking and we don't have him against Pirates," he told reporters.
"But look, we have Thabo (Nthethe) and (Soumahoro) Bangaly. The programme is hectic that I why we rested Khama (Billiat) and then took him out and that is why we kept (Tiyani) Mabunda out because he is also on a yellow and Kekana is also on a yellow.
"So at least I must have one for Saturday. But I'm lucky now that (Hlompho) Kekana didn't pick up a yellow so I still have them both.
"Hectic programme, we have experience for this, we regenerate the players, we rotate the players and 1-0 is three points, whether we score five or four, so let's go step by step."
Sundowns next face Orlando Pirates on Saturday, February 11.
Kick-off is at 15:30.
