Cape Town - Chippa United coach Eric Tinkler has promised his side will go all out for the victory ahead of Saturday's Absa Premiership clash with Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Chilli Boys have stabilised since Tinkler took over from Dan Malesela, who was sacked by boss Chippa Mpengesi after some poor results during the early part of the campaign.

However, the Chilli Boys have lost their last two outings which includes a league defeat to Highlands Park as well as a Telkom Knockout round of 16 encounter against Orlando Pirates last Saturday.

As such, Tinkler has promised to throw the kitchen sink at coach Pitso Mosimane's team in order to fully utilise home advantage.

He told reporters: "We want to take the game to them, it's our home game.

"We are not going to sit back and try to play them on the counter[attack]. We want to have a go at them. We want to play attractive football."

Meanwhile, Sundowns are in eighth position although they have matches in hand due to commitments in the CAF Champions League.

Saturday's action between the two teams is set to get underway from 20:15 at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium in Mdantsane.
