Welcome to today's live coverage of the DSTV Premiership as Cape Town City host SuperSport United at 3pm.
1'
Kickoff! Cape Town City get the action underway.
3'
SuperSport have made a good start but they make a hash of a freekick.
4'
City break at speed through the pace of Morris but Khumalo does well to come across to intercept. Good defending by the veteran.
6'
City win their first corner and it's surprisingly taken by centre back Mobara. It's too close to Williams who catches well in the SuperSport goal.
8'
Mokeke turns well in midfield and finds Mashego on the overlap but the City left back's cross is overhit and goes over the heads of his teammates in the box.
11'
SuperSport get forward down the left through Bhasera but his pass into Rayners is cut out with ease by Fielies. SuperSport are missing their two top strikers today in Grobler and Gabuza.
15'
City threaten again as Ajugun's pass deflects up in the air and when Mokeke volleys wide, the offside flag goes up.
17'
Mahachi is causing danger for SuperSport on the left as he has battle with Mkhize before he later gets free and has a cross cleared well by Mobara.
19'
Fielies goes long from the back for the run of Lakay but Williams reads it well and comes to the edge of his box to volley clear.
20'
Penalty shout! SuperSport go long, Fielies misses his header and Mahachi bursts into the box. Mobara comes across at pace to make a sliding challenge. Replays show he may actually have caught Mahachi and not the ball, but no penalty is awarded.
20'
Mashego gets forward down the left again but it's another poor overhit cross into no-man's-land.
24'
This game is being played at a good tempo with City dominating the ball and SuperSport pressing well but neither side creating much.
28'
Ajugun turns well in midfield for City and is fouled by a rash challenge by Ditlhokwe. This is good position for the home side.
29'
Lakay steps forward to strike from 30 yards but the effort flashes just wide of goal. Williams was unmoved between the sticks and would have had no chance if that effort was a few inches lower.
32'
PENALTY! Morris passes to Nodada but is taken down late by Ditlhokwe with a studs up challenge on the foot. Penalty to Cape Town City.
35'
GOAL! LAKAY! 1-0 to Cape Town City. The forward sends Williams the wrong way in goal to open the scoring. Replays show the referee got that penalty decision correct.
38'
Aside from that goal, this match is lacking goalmouth action. City have had one other shot which went wide and SuperSport are yet to register a single attempt.
39'
SuperSport have their first shot as a Mokoena toe poke is blocked away for a corner. Webber delivers an outswinger from the right but it's easily cleared.
41'
Danger! Donn gives the ball away cheaply for SuperSport to Ralani in the final third but the City winger is held up well by Khumalo and can only stab a weak effort wide of goal.
43'
Fielies gets forward from the back to win a corner. City take it short and Ajugun gets forward down the left and when his cross is cleared, Mobara volleys miles wide of the target for the hosts.
45'
HALF TIME. City lead 1-0 through Lakay's 35th minute penalty. A deserved lead as they have made all the running in that half against a toothless SuperSport team.
45'
The fourth official indicates one minutes of additional time to be played at the end of this half.
45'
Manziba delivers a good cross from the left for SuperSport but Mashego heads away and Mokeke completes the clearance. City are dealing well with everything the visitors are offering.
46'
The second half is underway with one change for Cape Town City as Makola replaces Ajugun.
50'
It's been a stop-start beginning to this half with several fouls including Morris catching Khumalo in the face with a high boot but avoiding a booking.
52'
SuperSport are trying to press higher up in this half but City are very confident when playing out from the back and are bypassing pressure quite easily.
55'
Manziba twice does well on the right to cause problems. First, he skins Mashego but crosses into the stands. Then he links with Kekana and SuperSport win a corner.
55'
SuperSport make a change as Mbule comes on to replace Webber in midfield.
56'
Mbule delivers a corner from the right and Ditlhokwe gets his head to the ball first but his knock-down is cleared well by City.
57'
A caution for SuperSport's Donn as he stands on the foot of Nodada.
58'
Lakay bursts forward down the right and cuts a pass back for Morris to strike but it's straight at Williams in the SuperSport goal.
59'
SuperSport make their second change as Rusike replaces Mahachi.
60'
A reminder that SuperSport made a late change to their starting XI as Lungu got injured in the warmup so Manziba started. That means one less impact sub option on the bench for Kaitano Tembo.
62'
City are sitting back much more now. They had 59% of the possession in the first half but just 47% in the second period so far.
63'
CLOSE! Mbule wins a corner as his shot is blocked by Mokeke. Mbule takes the corner from the left and a couple of touches sees the ball nudged towards goal by Kekana and Makola has to clear off the line for the home team.
64'
GOAL! MAKOLA! 2-0. City double their lead. Mkhize pulls the ball back for Ralani but he dallies instead of shooting. He finds Makola, who plays a one-two with Nodada and taps home from four yards. Cape Town City 2-0 SuperSport United.
67'
Since scoring, City are sitting off SuperSport are letting their defenders have the ball.
70'
CHANCE! Supersport's attack breaks down and City break at speed. Lakay waits and waits and slides in Morris for a chance but his sidefooted effort is saved well by Williams.
71'
SuperSport make their third and final change (due to using all three sub slots) as Waiswa replaces Donn in central midfield.
74'
Rayners gets forward down the left and crosses into the area where Rusike tries a backheeled flick but it has no power and is saved very easily by Leeuwenburgh.
76'
Double change for City as Nodada is replaced by Mdantsane and Ngoma comes on for Ralani.
78'
CHANCE! City counter attack well again as Ngoma finds fellow sub Mdantsane on the far side and the midfielder strikes the post! He has 9 goals this season and that really should have put him into double figures.
79'
Manziba makes another good dribble down the right for SuperSport but his cross is very poor again and sails out for a goalkick.
80'
City make their fourth change as speedy Martin replaces Lakay on the right flank.
84'
GOAL! MORRIS! 3-0. Ngoma delivers a corner, it finds Mkhize totally unmarked and he fires across the box for Morris to tap home and seal the win. Cape Town City 3-0 SuperSport United.
86'
SuperSport are a mess now and City walk through their midfield zone but Ngoma on the left can't pick anyone out with his cross after beating Kekana on the outside.
88'
Manziba makes a run through midfield and finds Rusike running the channels on the right. The latter cuts in and crosses left footed but it sails way over everyone and out for a goalkick on the far side.
90'
FULL TIME. Cape Town City 3-0 SuperSport United. A pretty easy win with SuperSport not at the races and desperately missing three key players. City scored through Lakay (35'), Makola (64') and Morris (84'). Thanks for joining us.
90'
Three additional minutes have been added here. City close to an important win.
