Nicholus Lukhubeni says he has no problem giving Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila (TTM) inside information about Mamelodi Sundowns ahead of their Dstv Premiership clash on Wednesday night.

The full back is on loan at TTM from Masandawana this season and is confident he can give his adopted club valuable information about the Brazilians.

"I will help the guys to try and prevent Sundowns from doing what they do best, which is playing with No.10s and overloading the midfield. So that’s one thing we tried to deal with today [yesterday] at training," Lukhubeni told SowetanLIVE.

"We also watched their game against Chiefs, so we are well aware which players we must look out for…which players can we overload and which areas we should prevent Sundowns from going into, that will make it much easier for us.

"I don’t think this is a time for me to be emotional (about facing Sundowns) because if I get emotional then I won’t have much to offer the club that I am currently playing for. So, I think a cool head will help me a lot going into this game."

"I honestly believe that I will return there. I am here at TTM to grow and get to a level where I can actually compete so that I will get more game time at Sundowns," the 24-year-old added.

"I am using this opportunity to grow as a player because last season was my first season in the PSL, and I played at a big club."
