MAMELODI Sundowns defender Derrick Spencer is looking forward to a breathtaking derby against hometown foes and Absa Premiership champions SuperSport United tomorrow.
Spencer also recalled their MTN semifinal clash last season, which had all the elements that make matches unforgettable.
Spencer ended up on the winning side that day, in which there were all sorts of thrills for the spectators, among them the flashing of red cards and the hospitalisation of United striker Anthony Laffor after a fist fight broke out.
"Hopefully the match will be as intriguing, though we can do without the violence. In our camp, things are really competitive since we have all been fighting for positions," Spencer said.
A welcome prospect for Downs would be the return of coach Hristo Stoichkov after serving his suspension.
United coach Gavin Hunt can always rely on winger Daine Klate, whose match-winning capabilities are undeniable.
"After a two-week break we are keen to get stuck in and have been trying out different things. This derby has been gaining momentum of late," Klate said.
The game kicks off at 8.15pm at Super Stadium in Atteridgeville.
