Mosele: Most teams are scared of Downs

Premiership

Baroka FC star Goodman Mosele says he would be satisfied to come out of Peter Mokaba Stadium today with a draw.

Bakgaga will be hosting star-studded Mamelodi Sundowns in a DStv Premiership encounter at 15h00, a game Mosele knows will not be easy to win.

Sundowns are currently sitting on top of the table, a position Baroka occupied briefly at the start of the season, but they have now slipped down to eighth.

"Ya eish, it's going to be a tough one this one, but I know the guys can push so I trust them," Mosele tells KickOff.com.

"We are playing against Sundowns. A draw for me would still be fine. To me playing against Sundowns, a draw is better than nothing.

"If we can just learn to concentrate in the last 15 minutes, then we will come out with something because that's been our problem. We lose matches in the last minutes."

In the past two games Sundowns have been without a few of their top players, but Mosele says that has not affected the defending champions.

"Sundowns is another team, the whole team is good. Even if they can lose 20 of their players to injuries, the remaining 10 players would still be good," says the PSL Young Player of the Season.

"It will always be a tough game against Sundowns, no matter who is playing. The toughest teams I have ever played against in the PSL, it's Pirates and Downs, especially Sundowns, eish! There they play football.

"As for us, all we want is to see ourselves in the top eight. I've been telling my friend Makume [Baroka defender Bonginkosi], that against Sundowns the more you play it's the more you feel their game. As long as you don't get scared when you are playing them you can learn something from them.

"But most teams are scared to play when facing Sundowns. They are scared. So that makes it easy for Sundowns. So what we need to do is to play, make them run, these people are old [laughs]!"
