Mamelodi Sundowns’ coach Pitso Mosimane has told his players to “fight for their lives” against AmaTuks tonight so that they can hopefully wrap up the PSL title race with two games to spare (kickoff 7.30pm).

Downs were competing for the league, Nedbank Cup and Caf Champions League – and now they only have the Premiership to fight for.

He says: “I said to them, ‘is this the same team? Are these the same players? Who have we changed to?’

“We needed to get back and play exactly the same way as we did. If we play exactly the same way as we did in those matches, we are bound to get the positive results.”
