Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says the club are in the market for an additional striker to assist Jeremy Brockie in attack.

Since leading goal-scorer Percy Tau left the Brazilians ahead of 2018/19, Mosimane has largely relied upon the likes of Brockie, Lebohang Maboe and Gaston Sirino to do the business up front.

However, after the 2016 African champions were held to a 0-0 draw by Telkom Knockout winners Baroka on Tuesday in a Premiership contest, 'Jingles' takes the view that more firepower is needed.

Downs may have limited options further forward especially with Sibusiso Vilakazi ruled out with a long-term injury to his Achilles tendon, which he ruptured on international duty with Bafana Bafana.

Speaking after the draw with Bakgaga, Mosimane told reporters: "JB [Brockie] fought hard. He played well for us to be honest.

"But he was left alone there. That's an area we need to reinforce, an additional striker."

It's unclear whether the side will add a new player in the January transfer window or at the end of the current campaign.

The outfit from Pretoria are next in action against Libya's Ahly Benghazi in a CAF Champions League First Round first-leg tie this weekend.
