Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes Wednesday night's clash with Orlando Pirates should be a fantastic advertisement for South African football.

Fans at Orlando Stadium are set for a humdinger of a match, with the top two sides of South African football over the past two seasons set to go head to head.

Sundowns will cut Kaizer Chiefs' lead at the top of the Absa Premiership standings to six points with victory, while Pirates will be looking to preserve their three-match unbeaten run since German coach Josef Zinnbauer took charge.

And Mosimane believes the fans at Orlando Stadium are in for a treat with both sides in good form.

"They are doing well. New coach, the team is scoring goals, which is very good, but it's the same players we know. We have a good team also," the Masandawana mentor told KickOff.

"It's going to be a nice and beautiful game. Let the stadium be full. I hope we don't miss a lot because we can create the chances to score. That's more important.

"I think the defence must do well and I think the German coach can say the same thing.

"But it's three points, whether you play Wits, AmaZulu or Polokwane, it's the same. It's three points.

"It's just bragging rights. It's a big game you want to win to give confidence to my players. You can see how happy they are when they win."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
