LEAGUE champions SuperSport United refuse to admit that a win against Tshwane rivals Mamelodi Sundowns tomorrow will see them almost home and dry in their quest for a third league title.

United are the hosts of this potentially explosive Absa Premiership encounter that kicks off at 8.15pm.

Matsatsantsa captain Bongani Khumalo warned yesterday that there was still a lot of work to be done before they could start talking about the championship.

"We are all raring to go and do well against Sundowns and I don't think the guys are nervous at all.

"We acknowledge that Sundowns have a lot of quality players, but nobody really scares us and we are going to give it our all.

"We are not thinking about the league as it is too early to talk about it. We must concentrate on the job at hand and take it one game at a time," Khumalo said.

He also said that playing without his defensive partner Morgan Gould, who is out with a hamstring injury, has been difficult.

"It has been tough playing without Morgan. He is a very good defender and had been scoring crucial goals for us before his injury so his injury was a setback but we have enough players to fill the void," the soft-spoken Swaziland-born defender added.

Assistant coach Thomas Madigage, who referred to Sundowns players as "the "Galacticos of South Africa", said fans were in for an entertaining match.

"Every player that Sundowns sign is of top quality and we'll have to be on our toes to deal with them, but we also have capable players who will give them a tough 90 minutes," Madigage said.

Sundowns striker Katlego Mphela, who has been in terrific form this season and is currently leading the scoring charts with 13 goals, said they will bring Matsatsantsa crashing down to earth.

"We are ready for them. Our game against Santos was an advantage for us because it has given us time to refresh.

"But I'm also a bit disappointed because I had already scored when it was called off (on Wednesday) but come Saturday, SuperSport are going down," Mphela said.

He said his target for this season is between 15 and 16 goals.
