Teko: We won’t drop our guard

Telkom Knockout

The clubs were on Monday drawn to face each other in the quarter-finals of the cup, with the match provisionally scheduled for the weekend of 25 October.

Sundowns will enjoy home advantage, while they are also 10 points richer in the League standings after seven rounds of fixtures.

Nevertheless, Modise is wary of their wounded opponents.

He told his official website: “Yes, AmaZulu have been struggling in the opening stages of the League. This does not put us in a better position than any of the teams in this competition. All cup games are difficult. This is because all the teams want to succeed in this tournament.

“We will not be letting our guard down. The aim is for us to make it to the final of the competition so that we can win it. AmaZulu are another obstacle on the way and we will have to prepare for them the same way we always prepare for a professional match. Besides, it will probably be some time before we play the quarter-final. They may improve during that time. But as for us, it is full throttle.”
