No time to relax for Downs

THE relief was palpable at Chloorkop after Mamelodi Sundowns collected their second win of the season - just in time for a challenging weekend home clash.

THE relief was palpable at Chloorkop after Mamelodi Sundowns collected their second win of the season - just in time for a challenging weekend home clash.

The 2-0 midweek win over AmaZulu will have gone a long way in motivating coach Hristo Stoichkov's side for tomorrow's clash with an always tricky Ajax Cape Town at Super Stadium .

Midfielder Papi Zothwane scored both goals . The bad news for Downs, though, is that defender Matthew Booth had to be taken off after twisting his troublesome ankle .

Some good news is the return of Benedict Vilakazi, who has been absent from the team for some time.

The Urban Warriors come to Tshwane minus 10 of their players, said their spokesperson, Thabiso Mekuto.

The biggest blow will be the absence of Franklin Cale, who is suspended.
