Highlands Park midfielder Ryan Rae has promised Mamelodi Sundowns they will make it difficult for them when they visit Makhulong Stadium in the Nedbank Cup.

The Lions of the North have already played in a cup final this season and were defeated by SuperSport United in the MTN8 in Soweto last year.

After beating Amakhosi, Highlands are now aiming to bring another PSL giant down.

"I can say it's going to be a tough game. Everyone coming to Makhulong is going to sweat. We will prepare ourselves and work hard," says Rae.
