Sundowns are touted as favourites to secure their second win of the season, but undermining Chiefs could be to their detriment.

“With that being the first game, you still want to work on momentum, cohesion and fluidity. It is not going to come with the first match,” Mokwena said ahead of Chiefs clash.

“You know with any team and all the teams in different leagues, it is four or five games before you get the momentum going, but what’s important is that while you are still doing that, you still have moments of dominance and control which we had.

Mokwena also praised his new signings in the form of Thapelo Maseko who made an immediate impact against Babina Noko.

This comes after Maseko provided an assist which saw another debutant, Lucas Ribeiro Costa netting in his first goal in Polokwane.

“This is why we brought Maseko here. He gives the team something we didn’t have last season,” he added.

“A lot of work was done to strengthen the squad in the transfer. At the end of the season, I said we won’t do much business, there will be five coming in and we got that now.

“We will settle a little bit and try to improve the team and give them a little bit more confidence.”
