PSL: Onyango’s Sundowns face well-rested Golden Arrows test

By Clive Kyazze

Despite playing 47 games across all competitions this season, Mamelodi Sundowns and Uganda Cranes skipper Denis Onyango need to win the remaining two in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) to seal a ninth title.

Sundowns will on Tuesday evening play one of the most important games of their season at home to Lamontville Golden Arrows and require a win to ascend to the log summit with a point behind Orlando Pirates.

The Brazilians like they are fondly known to have played 28 league games, winning 14. Coming off a win against Black Leopards in their last league game, Pitso Mosimane is hoping his charges go for it despite the tight schedule they’ve had the entire season.

“Six games in 15 days is not easy for these boys, I think you all know how rested Arrows are but I believe we can win the match,” Pitso stated before adding.

“We have to play the Sundowns way otherwise it’s been tough, all the travels stress but God works in mysterious ways.”

Gaston Sirino and Temba Zwane will be tasked with creating chances for Sibusiso Vilakazi and Sundowns’ league-leading top scorer Lebohang Maboe who is on eight goals. The ever-dependable vice-captain Onyango is also available in between the posts.
