“We don’t want to get into a position where we are depending on other teams to win or to qualify, we need to do it ourselves,” said Laffor.

Laffor. who came on late in the match for Thapelo Morena, will be hoping to get a chance when the Absa Premiership champions host the Togolese side next week Friday in Atteridgeville.

“Everybody wants to play football. It is important for a footballer to always be on the pitch and since I have been at Sundowns I have been able to play football none stop,” he said.
