Kick-off: 15h30

Ntsikelelo Nxadi replaced the suspended Nkosinathi Sibisi, Pule Mmodi made way for Saziso Magawana and Sbonelo Cele came in for Sibusiso Conco in the Arrows starting lineup. Meanwhile, Darwin Gonzales and Thabo Nodad came in for Relebogile Mokhuoane and Jaedin Rhodes for City.

It was a cagey affair in the opening exchanges with both sides sizing each other up and eager not to give too much away at the back.

The windy weather was making things difficult for both sides, especially when it came to crosses. With 20 minutes gone the wind caused havoc in the Citizens defence. Sibooniso Cele delivered to the near post and the deflection fell to Thabani Zuke who let fly and Hugo Marques tipped the effort over the bar.

City’s new signing Darwin Gonzales then showed impressive strength to fend off his man and delivered into the box for Mogamat May, who missed the ball completely as Craig Martin made a hash of his follow-up opportunity.

Eric Tinkler’s men won a free-kick 35 yards out from goal when Lungelo Dube brought down Craig Martin. Thato Mokeke stepped up and it was a good attempt as it went just wide of the top right corner.

The Citizens were definitely the side in the ascendancy and shortly after the interval Martin produced a fine cross into the box with May’s diving header inches away from opening the scoring.

The Capetonians deservedly broke the deadlock with just under ten minutes to go. Thabo Nodada was hauled down by Zuke before Khanyisa Mayo went around the wall and found the bottom left corner with precision.

Mduduzi Mdantsane then had a half-chance to make the scoreline more comfortable at the death when his left footed shot from outside the box after being played in by Thamsanqa Mkhize.

However, that miss mattered not as Tinkler’s side got back to winning ways.
