SPARKS are expected to fly and endless fireworks will be the order of the day when Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town meet in the final of the Nedbank Cup on Saturday at Nelson Mandela Stadium.

On paper, the Tshwane outfit are capable of sending any team packing, especially the small ones.

Their financial muscle also makes them look untouchable in the league.

The Urban Warriors veteran and towering striker Nathan Paulse says he is aware that Sundowns are one of the so-called giants of South African soccer, but the Capetonian young side are capable of turning tables against any side in the league.

Paulse agrees that facing Sundowns in the final won’t be a stroll in the park, but they will take them on and Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane will have to learn to keep quiet.

“Maybe this man Pitso thinks he will be playing against a high-school team. Ajax is made up of a lot of youngsters, but that is the strength of our team because we are capable of running for the whole game,

“He must be very careful because we will also go out there to win,” said Paulse.

Urban Warriors head coach Roger De Sa said his team is prepared to win the Nedbank Cup in order to go to CAF competition in style next year.

He says he is also looking forward of taking his young side into the CAF Confederation Cup next season.

Mosimane said his aim is to take his team to the final, and win.

“We have finally arrived on this big occasion. It was our aim and we need to welcome this opportunity with open arms.

“With all due respect, I really don’t see ourselves failing on the last and final­ hurdle,”said Mosimane
