Downs baying for United's blood

Expect a backlash from Mamelodi Sundowns when round two against Bay United kicks off at Loftus Stadium on Sunday.

The Brazilians get an almost immediate chance to exact revenge on the Eastern Cape upstarts, and it will be interesting to witness retribution, Chloorkop-style.

Kickoff is at 5pm.

Downs now know better than to underestimate the visitors, and as Harris Choeu said, the 1-0 loss to United was a wake-up call.

"That game was confirmation to those who did not know that games are not won on paper. It was a painful experience for the players, but the message has been well and truly received," said Choeu.

Lerato Chabangu, Dario Monteiro and Katlego Mphela fired blanks the last time around, and will probably be more determined to get the better of Arthur Baartman.

Moloto would be pleased that the goals have arrived for Benedict Vilakazi, who last played in the 1-1 draw with SuperSport United.

United captain Duran Francis refused to read too much into the 3-0 midweek loss. But they have lost the element of surprise.

"Downs have the best players in the country, and it is difficult to predict who will be in the lineup this time. It could be a totally different team from the one we last played against. But we will go out there and try our best," Francis said.

Except for Patrick Mayo, United will bring a full-strength team, with Gareth Ncaca or MacDonald Mukansi the main danger men.

For Sundowns, Mbulelo Mabizela, Surprise Moriri and Sibusiso Zuma are still out.
