Cape Town - Chicken Inn coach Joey Antipas says his side must keep the shackles on Sundowns winger Khama Billiat during Saturday’s CAF Champions League encounter.

The Gamecocks recorded a 1-0 victory over the Brazilians in Bulawayo last weekend, and will be hopeful of finishing off the job in Tshwane.

Zimbabwean international Billiat missed last week’s match after picking a muscle strain during the warm up, but is expected to start on Saturday.

Antipas admits the former CAPS United forward needs to be stopped if the Zimbabweans are to make it through to the next round.

"I know Sundowns are not a one-man team and have many good players but we will give special attention to Khama. He is a player who makes them tick at the moment," Antipas was quoted as saying by SuperSport.

"I know that he is back in action but we will do our best to contain him. My main worry however is playing under floodlights and my players are not used to playing at night.

"But I am sure by Saturday we would have trained three times under floodlights. We try to fight to the end and you know in these Champions League matches the home team is usually the one under pressure."
