Masandawana hold a very healthy 16-point gap ahead of third placed Pirates. They have also won their last three league meetings against tonight’s opponents.
Especially as The Buccaneers are reeling from yet another draw. This time against Swallows FC during the week.
Sundowns on the other hand are on a three-game winning streak, with the latest victory coming against Baroka FC earlier in the week.
“We are expecting a very, very tough game.” He told the club media.
“Of course, they will want to improve on their performance that they played against Swallows which they felt that they should’ve had maximum points after going ahead and then finding themselves sharing the point.
“So, of course with that they will want to improve and step it up a little and try to get maximum points when they play against us at home. With the games that they’ve played they’ve been good.
“I think they’ve had wins and quite a few stumbling blocks where they’ve had draws but they are a side that has momentum.” Vila added.
“They have Bandile Shandu trying to come up as a defender and trying to get into a good goalscoring opportunity. I think he had two back-to-back games where he scored so we have to look after him as he is a threat and there is Hotto as well.
“These are people that are scoring goals consistently in back-to-back games, we have to look after those people, but not only them because for them to get into those positions it starts from the back with the four at the back which have been consistent for the last three games.
