Goss: Wits need to be at their best to beat Sundowns

Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Ricardo Goss admits it will be tough to beat Mamelodi Sundowns in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals, but he believes they can do it.

The former Golden Arrows player knows it will be challenging both mentally and physically after spending over four months away from competitive football, but he reckons Wits are ready.

Goss will. however, be watching the game from the team hotel as he is suspended.

Wits and Sundowns will clash on Saturday 8 August at Orlando Stadium.

"Obviously it's going to be a tough and difficult game for both teams. We've prepared well and we are ready for the game obviously we haven't played in a long time but we are ready," Goss told Goal.

"So, in terms of match fitness, I think we will be ready to go, and facing Mamelodi Sundowns is always tough. They are a good side with quality players - it's going to be a really good game.

"We will have to do our best to win it and ensure we finish this one with silverware. I'm suspended for this game.

"I will be watching from the hotel but I just hope the guys will come up and give a good fight. It won't be easy but we will give it our best shot.

"I feel if we give it our all we stand a good chance of winning it."
