Pitso Maosemane: we want to improve our position as a team

Sundowns are unbeaten in their last seven league matches and ended 2012 with a 1-1 draw away to Chippa United.

Baxter’s counterpart, Pitso Mosimane admits he is not happy with Sundowns position on the log, but believes he has done well since coming on board.

“ I am not (happy with our position on the log), I think it can be better and I think we know where we came from in November,” said Mosimane.

The Tshwane team will be looking to improve on an away record which has seen them claim just two wins from seven matches.

The Brazilians are placed 10th on the Absa Premiership log with 18 points from 16 matches.

Chiefs are unbeaten in their last four league matches and ended 2012 with a 2-0 home win over bottom-of-the-log AmaZulu.

The Soweto giants have a good away record this season, with three wins, three draws and just one loss from seven matches.

Amakhosi are placed first on the Absa Premiership log with 35 points from 16 matches.

“I have just sat on the seat; I am only four games in and there have been improvements in terms of results, but it could have been better. We have acquired eight out of 12 points.

In head-to-head stats, Sundowns and Chiefs have met in 55 league matches since 1985.

The Amakhosi have claimed 23 wins compared to 17 for the Brazilians, while 15 matches have ended in draws.

Downs have a good home record against Chiefs, with 13 wins and just seven losses from 27 matches.

“But no, I am not happy with position. Sundowns have a culture and pedigree to do better. It is our job as coaches and players to take the team to a respectable position.

When the teams met earlier this season, the Soweto side came out on top on home soil, claiming a 2-1 win thanks to goals from Nkosi and Nkhatha.
