As they forget about the CAF Super Cup and turn focus to the Absa Premiership, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says they are on the back foot in the league.
The Brazilians will be motivated by their 1-0 win over TP Mazembe last weekend and heading to Rustenburg means they will aim for the full three points.
Mosimane's men have bagged two wins in 2017 in the league, a 1-0 win over Bloemfontein Celtic and a 6-0 drubbing of Orlando Pirates.

However, they bagged a draw against Chippa United last Tuesday while their hosts are yet to win in the new year having drawn against the Buccaneers and Baroka FC.
"We've got Platinum Stars next. Even after we won the Champions League we had training the next day in the morning, because we had a game against Polokwane City coming up," said Mosimane to Kick-Off.com.
"We are on the back foot in the league, and the Super Cup is done, I'm happy it's finished. Now, three more cups to go and we should try and win them all.
"We are not going to win them all; it's possible, but the league is the big one. This is the big one, hey, we must win this one."
The league's defending champions currently sit at number five on the log table with 26 points from 12 matches so far.
The match will be staged at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Tuesday night, kick-off is at 19:30.
