"The Issue of complacency won't be there because we played Botswana at COSAFA and we know what to expect. We expect a tough game and we have to really work hard to get a result that side," he said.
"This is the last week we have for conditioning the players because we want to work on tactics in the third week so that we prepare them and make sure they are ready for the challenge ahead," he added.
