Sundowns midfielder Moriri wary of Arrows backlash in Nedbank Cup

Moriri expects a different Golden Arrows side when the two PSL sides battle it out for a place in the quarterfinals of this year's Nedbank Cup
Mamelodi Sundowns veteran midfielder Surprise Moriri is pleased that they have drawn a PSL team in the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup.

However, Moriri believes that Golden Arrows are nothing but dangerous, as they are looking to avenge the results of their previous meetings.

"It's okay that we will play against another PSL club. So, we know what to expect from them," Moriri told reporters.

"Having said that, I think this is going to be a totally different ball game, because Arrows will be looking for revenge, but we are expecting an exciting game," he said.

The 33-year-old former Bafana man believes Arrows, like any other team in the last 16, have an equal chance of making it into the quarterfinals despite their current position on the PSL log.

"It's a Cup game, and I am sure they will want to use this game to regain their confidence and move away from the relegation zone. So, they have an equal chance like any other team," he added.
