JOHANNESBURG – As the MTN8 competition take the centre stage this week, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane demands goals from his men as they look to reach the final.
The Masandawana boss led his troops to a 5-0 win in Seychelles over Cote d’Or last weekend and he hopes they will be clinical when they meet neighbours SuperSoort United on Wednesday night.
Sundowns and SuperSport played to a 1-1 draw in the first leg that was held at Lucas Moripe Stadium more han two weeks ago, and Mosimane demands better display from his troops especially on defending set pieces.
”I know we scored five this past weekend and we scored five a few weeks back CAF Champions League. But my concern is that we’re not scoring enough in domestic competitions,” Mosimane told the media o Monday.

“Our attack, I wouldn’t say is blunt, but we don’t have enough ammunition. We have had many injuries,” reacted the coach.
Although his men will be at home for this tie, the former Bafana Bafana boss has explained that the only difference is their privilege to choose a dressing room.
“This is an important match but nothing much will change from the first leg. It’s the same stadium, same pitch, and the same opposition. The only difference is the change room,” he continued.
“The key for us is to manage set-pieces against SuperSport. We have to manage this but I also know that they have to manage something about us… you know the story,” concluded ‘Jingles’.
Meanwhile, the first semi-final second leg will see Highlands Park hosting Polokwane City on Tuesday night after a goalless draw in the opening leg.
Looking at other Premier Soccer League (PSL) news, there are two coaching casualties in the top flight after Chippa United axed coach Clinton Larsen whilst Cavin Johson was shown the exit door by AmaZulu on Monday.
