Sandilands admits their first loss of 2017/18 was bound to come at some stage, and believes the City clash will now be crucial for them to make up the lost ground before the international break.

“I think it was a rude awakening for us, that there are going to be challenges within the season and there’s still a long way to go,” said Sandilands.

“After that loss we were deeply hurt, [but] we’re under no illusion that it’s going to be a season with a lot of ups and you’ll have a bump here and there.

“We’re regrouping and know that this coming game against Polokwane City is going to be huge for us. It’s for us just to get back to where we want to be, especially before the FIFA break.”

Kick-off at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium is set for 20h15 on Saturday.
