Rulani Mokwena says Mamelodi Sundowns are aware of facing an 'aggressive and mentally strong SuperSport United side that will be 'very difficult to break down'.
The DStv Premiership leaders take on second-placed Matsatsantsa in an eagerly awaited top-flight clash at the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium on Saturday.
While Downs have been impressive again this season, after their treble successes in last year's campaign, Mokwena admits to being wary of a side that closely resembles the philosophy of their head coach Kaitano Tembo.
Mokwena was reported by Goal to have said: "SuperSport are probably the one team who are profiled very close to the profile of its manager.
"Probably the one team that adopts the personality of its coach, Kaitano being a very good coach who has come through the structures at SuperSport United to become the head coach.
"He's always had teams which are just as aggressive and mentally strong as he was as a football player, very difficult to break down."
Mokwena added: "They've had a very decent start to the season, quietly gone about their business with a lot of tactical flexibility."
