We’ll take Sundowns to the wire - Johnson

Kaizer Chiefs take on Mamelodi Sundowns in a DStv Premiership fixture at FNB stadium on Thursday evening and Amakhosi coach Cavin Johnson believes the confidence they have gained from an impressive showing in their previous outing against SuperSport United will benefit them in their quest to get the better of The Brazilians.

On the team’s readiness for the match:

The players are in a very good space after getting a good result, and more importantly, putting in a good performance against SuperSport. We face another Tshwane team in our home stadium in front of our amazing supporters, and we are preparing to take Sundowns ‘to the wire’.

As the home team, it is incumbent on us to give a good account of ourselves and go all out to get the three points.

On what to expect from Sundowns:

They are a well-organised team, with some good players and a technical staff that pushes them to keep up a high standard. Having seen them play TS Galaxy on Monday, it is difficult to predict what line-up Rulani (Mokoena, Sundowns’ coach) will select to play us. He has a big, talented group of players at his disposal, although we expect some of the players who missed out against TS Galaxy to come back into the side.

The match kicks off at 19:30
