The Rockets hope the experience of Bernard Parker will come into play against the dangerous Downs midfield. The former Kaizer Chiefs star has played 12 games for them this season and managed a goal in the process.
Goalkeeper Vasilije Kolak must be at his best and ensure he commands his defence effectively to limit the visitors when they go for goal.
Despite missing the likes of Terrence Mashego, Lebohang Maboe and Rivaldo Coetzee, who are nursing long-term injuries, Sundowns coach Rhulani Mokwena has been grinding out results.

TS Galaxy are one of the two teams that have defeated Sundowns this season. The triumph came early in the campaign courtesy of Lifa Hlongwane's strike at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.
Sundowns are the highest-scoring side in the PSL having found the back of the net on 34 occasions in 18 games and will be playing a side that has the joint second-best defence, having conceded just nine goals.
The Rockets will need to improve in their attack, considering the fact that they have scored just eight goals in the 17 league games they have played.
Results will be shared soon.
