KWAZULU-NATAL amateur side Island FC are relishing the prospect of facing star-studded Mamelodi Sundowns in a Nedbank Cup last-32 clash at Ulundi Stadium on Sunday.

"You don't need any motivation when playing against a big club like Sundowns," said Island FC administrative manager Mfanafuthi Ndlovu.

"We know all their players and we are busy strategising on how to beat them."

Island FC, who have reached this stage of the tournament before, are still reeling from their failure to gain promotion to the National First Division. Lethal Striker Sakhile Ntshangase could prove a handful. - Ramatsiyi Moholoa
