Mamelodi Sundowns want to redeem themselves when they take on Marumo Gallants in the DStv Premiership according to Lebohang Maboe.
Sundowns have only won one league match against Richards Bay since they were crowned league champions on Saturday, 1 April.
This Masandawana drew 2-2 against Amazulu after leading 2-0. “I think we really played well [against Amazulu] and we were just unfortunate to concede the two goals in the second half,” said Maboe.
“We have another big one coming up on Saturday [against Marumo Gallants] and we are turning our focus on that game.
“Marumo Gallants have been doing well in the Caf Confederation Cup and in the league – they are a very good team not be taken lightly. We just drew a game [against Amazulu] and now we want to redeem ourselves. We will do our own home work and analysis and see what they have to offer.”
The match between Sundowns and Marumo Gallants was scheduled for Saturday, 13 May before it was brought forward to Saturday, 6 May due to Caf inter-club commitments.
Sundowns will play against Wydad Casablanca in the Caf Champions League semi-final while Marumo Gallants will take on Young Africans in the Caf Confederation Cup.
“Their striker, Ranga Chivaviro, has been doing well,” adds Maboe. “Lucky Mohomi has been popping up everywhere with assists. [Celimpilo] Ngema has been one of their outstanding players throughout the season.
They have pretty much have a decent team but like I said, we will do our own homework and analysis. And we will be well prepared on Saturday.”
