We travel to Cape Town on the weekend to take on Cape Town City on Saturday evening. The game will be played at Cape Town Stadium, with kick-off at 18h00.
Having started the season with a convincing win over Maritzburg United, the team have not managed to find the same form as they did in the Derby in their games against Bloem Celtic and Mamelodi Sundowns (MTN8).
After the MTN8 fixture, Coach Larsen was positive regarding the position play from the side and the improvement in the build up play.
This, as well as addressing the defensive issues regarding closing down play our opponent at the edge of the box would have been key factors in this weeks training ahead of our third ABSA Premiership clash of the season.
It will be a battle of 7th and 8th place on the log, taking current standings into consideration.
Cape Town City have had a similar performance to date, also having secured just 3 points from their two encounters. With a win over Supersport United (2-0) in their opening game, and then an away loss to Baroka (2-1), Benny McCarthy’s charges will be eager to notch up some points on their home turf.
Statistically the game could go either way. Over the last 2 seasons, we have won 1, drawn 1 an lost twice to the Mother City team.
It’s full points that we are looking for though.
If you are in Cape town and are able to support, we would love to see you in the stands.
