Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane expects a swift response from his men following three straight defeats, while he is also thinking ahead to the club's return to the Champions League.
Sundowns are hurting after suffering losses to Kaizer Chiefs, AmaZulu and Chippa United in domestic competition, not long after seeing their CAF title defence end in the quarter-finals last month.
And while Mosimane is mindful their exploits in Africa took its toll, he has stressed they need to pull up their socks.
“The reality is we need to buckle up. We got no reasons not to win the games,” said Mosimane, whose side last tasted victory with a 1-0 win over Platinum Stars on October 1.
“We have no reasons not to win against AmaZulu, we have got not reasons to lose to Kaizer Chiefs, no doubt about that.”
'Jingles' added that he aims to sign two players in January to bolster his options for their next foray into continental football.
“We will try and sign two players. I think we need two maybe for the Champions League that starts in January,” Mosimane said.
“It is important for us to start preparing for the Champions League. We've done a lot of kilometres and Sundowns supporters sometimes must understand this. The good thing is that they have travelled with us to Cairo and Japan and they felt how it is to travel and come back to play a game.
“I think they understand that all those factors and playing a season in a row without rest, we are definitely going through a dip.
“But we will come back. It's okay. We've enough quality to play.”
