Pitso may rest Zwane, Zungu

Premiership

The midfielders were on camp with Bafana Bafana during the recently concluded Africa Cup of Nations, but got no game-time in Equatorial Guinea.

Mosimane told Downs' website: “We had the opportunity to assess the two players coming back from national duty with Bafana and because they didn’t play we might decide not to rush them but we’ll see.

“The good thing though is that we have a lot of players in these positions who we have worked with and prepared while they were away. For example we have Hlompho Kekana, Surprise Moriri or Kudakwashe Mahachi who have really been working hard.”

Meanwhile, 'Jingles' insisted the title race is not over despite the champions trailing log leaders Kaizer Chiefs by 15 points. Last term the Brazilians pipped Amakhosi to League honours by overhauling an 11-point deficit in the latter stages of the season.

“I have seen Sundowns squander a 12-point lead in the past and I have seen Bayern Munich get only one point from six matches, but I have also seen the very same Sundowns fight back from an eleven points deficit,” said Mosimane.

The League resumes this evening after an elongated break to accommodate the Nations Cup, with most of the 16 clubs having played 17 matches.
