Kekana: Downs desperate for points


Sundowns - unbeaten in 23 domestic matches in a row - are closing in on Absa Premiership honours as they enjoy a seven-point lead at the summit with eight fixtures left.

Phunya Sele Sele are contrastingly looking to end a run of five straight defeats in all competitions as they sit five points above the drop zone in 12th place on the table.

“As Mamelodi Sundowns we really need points more than anybody else if you check our position on the log,” says Kekana, who traded Celtic for Downs in August 2011.

“We need to apply ourselves like we have been doing in each and every match we have been playing and try to win the match. I am quite confident we can do that. We just to have to go there apply ourselves and win the match.”

The Bafana Bafana returnee adds: “As players we have set ourselves goals that we wanna achieve at the end of the season. By doing that we have to take each game one at a time.”

The Nedbank Cup champions enter the league match (19h30 kick-off) fresh off a 2-0 home win over AC Leopards in a CAF Champions League, first round, first leg tie.
