Cape Town – Jomo Cosmos coach Jomo Sono does not see Maritzburg United getting the best of his side in their final PSL fixture.

A win for either side would guarantee Absa Premiership football next season while a defeat could get either side relegated or falling into the relegation/promotion playoff spot (15th position) depending on the result of the University of Pretoria.

Maritzburg's victory over Ajax Cape Town give Ernst Middendorp’s side a slight chance of survival following Cosmos’ defeat to Golden Arrows while Polokwane City held AmaTuks to a 2-2 draw.

According to KickOff, Sono says the Team of Choice can expect a physical encounter when the two sides meet on May 21 in Potchefstroom.

"Where? There? you don’t come with confidence there (at Olen Park). They won’t be overconfident… confidence don’t work there,” said Sono.

"The pitch is small and we get closer to tackles and we are quick there as well. There... we will get closer to them and we don’t think if they will take tackles and we just hope that there is more fighting in the bench because definitely there will be a few tackles and we will tackle them."
