Linda Mntambo confident Jomo Cosmos will topple table-topping Thanda Royal Zulu

Posted: 24 November 2016 Time: 22:46

Jomo Cosmos midfielder Linda Mntambo believes his side have the quality to put an end to Thanda Royal Zulu's unbeaten start to the season.

Ezenkosi go into the encounter placed fifth in the standings and, on paper, looked outmatched against an AmaBhubesi side that are yet to lose and comfortably on top of the National First Division standings.

However, Mntambo believes the KwaZulu-Natal outfit have met their match.

"We are not just any team, we are Jomo Cosmos," Mntambo tells

"Our main objective is promotion and if we can't beat them [Thanda] then who else will?"

"[Expect] nothing less than total commitment from the players. We are going to beat Thanda in their back yard, they come in to Sunday'clash against us as favourites and I think we are going to cause any upset."

Mntambo says a win on Sunday will help them a lot in their quest for promotion.

"I think by beating them we stand a good chance. Even the points difference will be reduced. I just hope all goes according to plan but I trust in that we will come out victorious."

The two sides will face each other on Sunday at the UMhlathuze Sports Complex (15h30).
