Sundowns wary of 'giant killers' Richards Bay

Nedbank Cup

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Manqoba Mngqithi insists his side will not underestimate Nedbank Cup opponents Richards Bay FC in a round of 32 clash.

Mngqithi's side will be keen to avoid a cup upset and continue their impressive form so far this season.

"I think we are playing against a very competitive team in Richards Bay," Mngqithi said.

"They've done very well this season in the league, they are up there.

"It says to us that they are also giant-killers who have also done very well in the past in cup competitions against big teams.

"It's very important for us to give this match all the respect it requires and works very hard to ensure that the team is ready for it.

"One must say we were a little bit unfortunate with the draw to get a team that I believe will give us a hard time.

"We believe that they have the capacity to upset any team but we are hopeful that we can get the desired result."
