Freese: We are dark horses

Nedbank Cup

The National First Division outfit host The Brazilians in a 'David vs Goliath' encounter in the opening round of the competition at the Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa on Sunday.

With the Absa Premiership log leaders having their games shown live on television on a weekly basis, Freese believes his side come into the clash with a slight advantage in that Pitso Mosimane has been unable to do any video analysis on his side.

However, the former Platinum Stars mentor also reveals that scouts from Chloorkop have been spotted at their recent fixtures.

"For us it's much better because we see them play every week on TV, and I don't think anybody has seen us play on TV," says Freese.

"So it's a little bit of dark horses in that aspect, i should think, but you know Sundowns with all the resources, they've been sending people to come and watch us play."

The 59-year-old tactician is under no illusion of his sides chances against a rampant Sundowns outfit, and says they will embrace the occassion when they welcome their opponents to Thembisa, for the sake of both the players and the supporters.

"We've decided to prepare well for this game, [because] it's a big game for the club, the players and the spectators we have in Thembisa."
