- Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has pledged to not take Vaal University lightly
- Mosimane cited the examples of when Baroka beat Kaizer Chiefs and Maluti beat Orlando Pirates
- Sundowns will be without four key players due to suspension
Mamelodi Sundowns are braced for battle against fourth tier side Vaal University of Technology in the next round of the Nedbank Cup.
Although the Brazilians will go into the encounter as strong favourites, coach Pitso Mosimane is weary of his opponents.
The Downs tactician cited some of the upsets that took place in the past to emphasise how things can go wrong.
Mosimane said, "I also remember there was Baroka story and there was Maluti story. There are a lot of stories like that."
Mosimane referenced the upsets suffered by Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates respectively against the lower league opponents.
VUT pulled off one of the biggest ever upsets when they defeated Golden Arrows in the previous round.
KickOFF.com reported that it was a performance that made Mosimane sit up and take notice.
Mosimane revealed, "I went to watch them last week Sunday because I am anxious to see a team in SAB eliminating Arrows, and you become anxious."
Sundowns will have to make do without the talented quartet of Gaston Sirino, Hlompho Kekana, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Mosa Lebusa.
Briefly.co.za previously reported how the four players deliberately collected yellow cards to clear the slate for the remainder of the league fixtures.
