The former Free State Stars hitman suffered the knock during Sundowns' 2-1 win over AmaZulu in the Prince Mangosuthu Legacy Cup in Ulundi, KwaZulu-Natal last weekend.

"Obviously I would like to have played longer but this is part of the game, but I don't think it is a bad injury," Sekotlong tells KickOff.com.

"I'll be out for now. It's swelling but I don't think I'll be out for long."

The 27-year-old last featured in a competitive game in July during a CAF Champions League tie with AS Togo-Port.

Sekotlong is determined to take advantage of the next opportunity he gets from coach Pitso Mosimane.

"You need to wait for your chances and when you get that chance that's when you are ready and motivated to actually get that goal," he said.

"To play at Sundowns, that is what you plan to do, to take it. At Sundowns it is more a mental thing. When you are at a big team like this you have got to be mentally ready because there's a lot of pressure.

"There's a lot of pressure, so you've got to be able to deal with the pressure and understand that the one chance you get you need to take it."
