CAPE TOWN – The bigger the challenge, the better Cape Town City seem to play.
City love nothing more than to mix it with and beat the so-called heavyweights of South African football. They have seen off glamour clubs Kaizer Chiefs and PSL leaders and defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns, as well as former pacesetters Wits in the league this year, the three come-from-behind victories to cancel out first-round losses earned through sheer guts and determination.
It’s this kind of mindset that puts City in with a realistic chance of being the only top-tier team in with a shot at landing a treble this season.
Benni McCarthy’s charges have already been crowned MTM8 champions and now have their sights set on league and Nedbank Cup honours.
