CAPE TOWN – Benni McCarthy feels there’s no better time than now for Cape Town City to play Kaizer Chiefs, especially after the way his troops performed last time out away to Premier League champions Mamelodi Sundowns in a 1-1 draw.
“It was very promising, there was a lot of good stuff, a lot of positives from the game against the Brazilians last Tuesday and a lot to build on from there,” said McCarthy.
“Now we are at home playing at Newlands Stadium (7.30pm kick-off) and we want to put one right here at this stadium because the last performance on this pitch we put in one of our worst performances. We’ve prepared well for the Amakhozi so hopefully the job is done and the players can just go out there and play the way we know they can play.”
McCarthy is always encouraging his players to take a shot at goal, so it is unsurprising to see four of them scoring a goal each in the three league games played so far.
Central defender Edmilson Dove is the latest to hit the back of the net getting the all-important goal to earn City a 1-1 away draw at Sundowns in his 50th league appearance (two goals).
