Lakay: Sundowns will bounce back

Mamelodi Sundowns defender Lyle Lakay remains confident that the Brazilians can rediscover their best form against Golden Arrows in the Telkom Knockout.

Pitso Mosimane's charges have hit a bit of a rough patch in recent weeks, losing to Kaizer Chiefs and Golden Arrows in the Absa Premiership.

However, Lakay believes they will soon hit their stride again and he is eager to turn over a new leaf against Arrows in the TKO semi-finals on Saturday.

"It's nothing new. Last year we also went through a patch like this. We were drawing games and we lost a few," he said, as quited by IOL.

"Lots of teams go through it during the season. The good thing for us is that we are getting it early. We can turn it around and go on the run that we usually go on close to December.

"We normally start doing well around this time of the year.

"We just have to try harder and break it. If you aren't getting the result, that means you aren't doing enough, so you have to keep pushing to break the ice and things turn around and results start coming.

"We won the league on the last day last season, we have shown that we can turn it around. When we turn it around, things will start going our way and you will see the Sundowns that you know."
