Tau wary of struggling Arrows


Sundowns, who are unbeaten in their last four league matches, are still on cloud nine after their 4-0 victory over Baroka FC at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Tuesday. They have scored nine goals during this period and will be looking to put struggling Arrows to the sword this afternoon (15h30).

The Brazilians have a chance to usurp Orlando Pirates at the top of the standings. The Buccaneers played to a 1-1 draw against AmaZulu at Orlando Stadium last night and have a one point lead at the summit.

Tau, who scored a brace in their emphatic victory over Baroka, is confident they will do well against Clinton Larsen’s side today. But after losing to the KZN outfit in the Nedbank Cup last season, Tau knows the threat the hosts pose.

“Look, we know they are a good side and they have given us problems [in the past]. I have watched our previous game against them to see what led us to lose against them. But this time we will try give our best to get the result,” said Tau.

“The score against Baroka keeps the mood high, especially because we did not concede. I guess the coach [Pitso Mosimane] was happy with what we did, but I don’t think he expects us to score four again. He just expects us to improve as a team,” he added.

Since Khama Billiat returned from injury, Tau is enjoying his game. They are combining well upfront, but Tau says it’s all a team effort.

“Sundowns is not a one man team. Everyone has a role to play. We have missed a lot of players like Keagan [Dolly] and Bongani [Zungu], but Sundowns keeps going. It’s a big team and we have a lot of players," he said.
