JOHANNESBURG – Itumeleng Khune is joined by rightback Ramahlwe Mphahlele, leftback Godfrey Walusimbi and centrehalf Siyabonga Ngezana - the key men at the heart of the club’s consecutive clean sheets last week.
Having come under immense criticism at the start of the campaign, coach Solinas appears to have finally found the right combinations, although he also seems to enjoy rotating his squad at the drop of a hat.
Khune leaked goals early on, but would have been happy to collect back-to-back clean sheets along with six points for the Glamour Boys.
Ayanda Patosi also makes a rare appearance after he was instrumental in helping Cape Town City fight from a goal down to draw 2-2 against Absa Premiership log leaders Orlando Pirates in Soweto last Wednesday.
The often-misunderstood attacker struck two beautiful goals in the second half of a clash the Buccaneers dominated until they dropped their guard later in the match.
Patosi has now been touted as the key man for City ahead of this weekend’s MTN8 final clash against SuperSport United - who beat Black Leopards 4-0 on Sunday and have two of their forwards in our Team of the Week - in Durban.@superjourno
