Cape Town City is preparing for the MTN8 final against Supersport United a week away from now, on Saturday 29 September at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, a repeat of last year’s final, where City lost on penalties against Matsatsantsa a’ Pitoli.

Hopefully, they will break the voodoo this time.

Last night, Benni McCarthy’s outfit played their Absa Premiership game against Orlando Pirates in Soweto, after losing 4-1 against Kaizer Chiefs last Saturday at the Cape Town Stadium.

It was always on the cards that at one point Chiefs would register a win and nobody expected the win to be against Cape Town City on their home soil.

Khama Billiat, a former Ajax Cape Town player, was instrumental in the demise of the Citizens as he not only scored a brace but kept the home team on their toes.

McCarthy and his team are still reeling from the loss and the team is in for a torrid time on the training field.

Before that game, McCarthy referred to his charges as “11 hungry lions”, out to make mincemeat of Chiefs, but has eaten humble pie since then.

At the training sessions this week, simple mistakes will be unpacked and rectified to prevent another loss to Orlando Pirates.

The Citizens are lying 12th on the log with only five points.

A win in Soweto will boost the morale of the players and also put them in the top 10.
