Mamelodi Sundowns defender Rushine de Reuck says that they want to keep the winning momentum going into the Fifa international break with victory over a wounded Swallows FC.
The Brazilians will be back in DStv Premiership action this weekend as they face Swallows at Loftus Versfeld on Sunday at 5.30pm.
Swallows come into the game off the back of a devastating 4-0 defeat to Cape Town City in the MTN8 semi-final second leg on Wednesday, in what is their heaviest defeat since they were promoted last season.
Despite suffering a devastating loss, Downs defender De Reuck believes it will be a tight game this weekend when they face the Brids.
“We can’t read too much into that. It was a cup game. Now it is a league match,” De Reuck told the club’s media department.
“Obviously they struggled a bit after conceding the first goal, but now it’s a league game and it is different.
“We need to win this game. It is very important to go into the Fifa break with that winning feeling.”
“Swallows are really difficult to play against. They have kept many clean sheets and we know it is not going to be an easy game.
“It is going to be important for us to try and break them down and create chances against them. I know that if we apply ourselves really well in the game, we can come out victorious.”
