Mamelodi Sundowns defender Lyle Lakay has identified two Maritzburg United players who can bring the recently crowned MTN8 champions back down to earth ahead of their DStv Premiership clash.

The Brazilians will have to shake off the excitement of winning the coveted trophy for the first time since 2007 as they turn their attention back to domestic action.

The side from Chloorkop currently sit atop the log standings; however, standing in their way is a tricky Maritzburg squad who are fresh, having last played 10 days ago when they took on TS Galaxy.

Ahead of the clash, Downs defender Lakay has singled out the threat posed by the Team of Choice’s Hlongwanes in Lefa and Bongokuhle, who both pose a threat to the Brazilians’ airtight defence.

“They have a few players that are dangerous, most of the time they like to play on the break and both [Bongokuhle Hlongwane and Lefa Hlongwane] are very quick and they can play on the counter. Both of them are very skilful, those are the two players we need to watch out for and their striker, their main threat is the front three and if we can look after them and have our rest defence in order, then we can maintain them,” he told the club’s media department.

The 29-year-old defender has also warned his side of the dangers of a potential cup final hangover, which could come back to bite them.

“We had our moment, we got to celebrate and as professionals we need to be professional and focus on our next game. The guys are focused, we’re still hungry and we still want to win every trophy that is at hand, nothing has changed. The mandate is still the same, we are fully focused, and we are ready to fight for the three points. As professionals also the coach doesn’t have to tell us that, we should just know that and prepare properly,” he added.
