Chiefs ready to face Downs

Veteran goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is confident Kaizer Chiefs will pull off a victory at what he terms their “happy hunting ground” when they face DStv Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Stadium on Sunday.

Chiefs have won three and drawn the other of their last four visits to face The Brazilians, including a come-from-behind 2-1 victory last season that was the only time Sundowns were beaten in their 30 leagues in the 2020-21 campaign.

“Loftus is our happy hunting ground,” Khune told his club’s website. “We play well there, we play a good brand of football and we get positive results too.

“So it won’t be any different this coming weekend. It will be a great match between the two sides. We know what happens when we meet – it’s two bulls and as always, we want to come out victorious.

“The coach [Stuart Baxter] has a plan, as players we just have to go out there and execute it and get a positive result out of the game.”

Both sides have managed four points from their opening two league games this season.

The game between Sundowns and Chiefs is among the biggest fixtures in the South African football calendar and it is a must-win for fans and players alike, but there will be players who will be even more motivated.
