Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane will recall number one goalkeeper Denis Onyango when they take on Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League semifinal on Friday.

Onyango missed the last few league games against SuperSport United, Baroka FC and Chippa United after picking up a knee injury during the previous match against Al Ahly in Egypt a fortnight ago.

Mosimane is also set to recall midfielder Gaston Sirino to his starting line-up for the game after he also missed the trip to Egypt due to injury.

"You know what happens in Wydad, you have seen games away. We need Denis in those games and we want to make sure Denis is available," said Mosimane before jetting out to Morocco last night.

"He could have played [against Chippa United] but we didn't want to risk him. Also the old legs Wayne Arendse, Anele Ngcongca and we've got to trust Mosa [Lebusa] and other players, so we rested them.

"We need fresh legs and we needed to give Sirino game-time. He has not played for long and you could see he was a little bit rusty and also give Vila [Sibusiso Vilakazi] time to play, and it's good Lebo [Maboe] is back."
