CAPE TOWN - When Cape Town City host Wits at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday night (kick-off 7.30pm), it’ll highlight two of the most conspicuous features of this season’s PSL: City’s attacking axis of Lebogang Manyama and Aubrey Ngoma against the Clever Boys’ superb structure and organisation, which includes some top-class defenders like Buhle Mkhwanazi, Thulani Hlatshwayo, Sifiso Hlanti and Nazeer Allie.
City’s two star attackers Manyama and Ngoma said they were really looking forward to the encounter against Wits. The two players acknowledged the quality of the opposition, but remained confident that, in the end, the team ethic at the heart of City’s success this season, would carry the day.
“We know what we are up against,” said Manyama at City's press conference on Tuesday afternoon. “Wits are a powerful side – but, for us, the performance has always been about the whole team – and it will be no different against Wits.
“What’s worked for us this season is that we’ve always taken things one game at a time. We have seven games remaining, but all our focus is only on the challenge of Wits, nothing else… We are as calm as ever, we will keep going as a team and we will, as always, give it our best shot.”
For Ngoma, it was just about City doing what they have been doing all season long: “I think for every player, it’s about consistency. We just want to carry on where we left off in the last game.
“Yes, we know how good Wits are, but we will focus on ourselves. We know what has made us successful this season and we will continue to do so.”
