Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho
Kekana has singled out Bonginkosi Ntuli as the player to watch for when
the Brazilians clash with AmaZulu in the Telkom Knockout Cup Last 16.
Having been drawn as opponents in Wednesday's draw for the South
African League Cup, Kekana is aware of the threat the Durban-based side
pose under Jozef Vukusic.
After replacing Cavin Johnson at the Usuthu helm, Vukusic has turned
the side into a dangerous outfit with Ntuli leading the line.
"I have watched three of AmaZulu’s last matches under the new coach
(Vukusic) and I can see they are playing well. When I look at that team,
they are solid and dangerous," Kekana told the Sundowns website.
"They have good players and Bongi Ntuli is still there leading the line."
The 34-year-old Kekana believes home support could be crucial for his
side in the match, although they always aim for victory irrespective of
where they play.
"We know the responsibility that we carry as a team like Mamelodi
Sundowns. We just want to try and win every match that we play," he
"It’s not going to be easy because everyone comes against us highly motivated, but we want to continue our good run.
"But we are playing at home in this TKO fixture and we have been
doing well at home so far this season and the plan is to continue with
the same momentum. It would be nice to win this one in our own
