JOHANNESBURG – Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane acknowledges that they’ll have to rectify their scoring woes if they are to get a positive result in their do-or-die clash against Cape Town City in the return leg of the MTN8 semi-final at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday (kick-off at 3pm).
Sundowns’ failure to score in their last three outings has been costly: they’ve bowed out of the CAF Champions League after a goalless draw against Horoya AC on Tuesday, while, they’ve now got to overturn a 1- 0 deficit that they suffered in the first leg against City.
“We are in the same situation as Tuesday’s game, where we have to score,” Mosimane said. “We haven’t been looking good in terms of taking chances that we create. But we have to be positive that we will score the goals on Sunday, which at the moment is a little bit of a mental issue. But even if we can create chances, when we don’t convert them, it doesn’t mean anything.”
The Brazilians’ lack of goals has resulted in striker Jeremy Brockie coming under fire for the numerous chances that he’s failed to put away. He is going to have to fire because anything less than a win at home won’t be enough for Sundowns to continue the chase for the only trophy that has eluded their cabinet.
