Manqoba Mngqithi has issued a strong warning to Golden Arrows

Mamelodi Sundowns aiming to obtain the 3 points against Golden Arrows.

Manqoba Mngqithi has revealed that they will have to make changes against Golden Arrows on Wednesday, but this does not mean they will field a weakened team.

Last Sunday, Masandawana were in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where they drew 2-2 with Maniema in the opening leg of the Caf Champions League's second preliminary round.

They face the Backheel Boys on Wednesday at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in Durban, with the goal of extending their lead in the PSL table with a win. The 50-year-old does not expect an easy tie, but he is confident in his team's chances of winning at the end of the competition.

"Golden Arrows may sit a little deeper in this match, which may necessitate the use of more of us." However, we believe we have the capability to unlock them and capitalize in areas where we believe they are weak," Mngqithi told reporters on Tuesday.

"In order to minimize weariness, we need to replenish from the Congo team. And those who will be given the opportunity to play must demonstrate that they are deserving of it before those who will start on the bench.

"However, against Golden Arrows, we will be seeking for a win and will have a good team." We have a Champions League encounter this weekend as well, but we have instilled in our players the desire to win every game, regardless of the opponent or the level of competition.

"Everyone is ready to assist the team in achieving a win on Wednesday."

The last time the two teams met was in the MTN8 Cup on October 3, when the Brazilians won 3-0.

Devine Lunga scored the second goal after Thabiso Kutumela set him up. Haashim Domingo assisted Neo Maema for the third goal, which came in the stoppages.

"Arrows had no choice but to assault during the Cup game because they were already down. But they have something to play for on Wednesday, and we don't anticipate them to perform as well as they did in the cup game "Mngqithi came to an end with this statement.
