Cape Town City have a good chance to continue their steady climb up the Premiership standings when they take on struggling Baroka in Saturday’s clash at Cape Town Stadium. City come into the encounter full of confidence in seventh position having collected 10 points from a possible 15 in their last five PSL matches. Meanwhile, Bakgaga are lacking consistency in 14th place but did pick up a crucial 1-0 win over fellow strugglers Maritzburg United on 22 December. Nonetheless, a defeat to Black Leopards in their opening game of 2019 sees the side just outside of the relegation zone ahead of last-placed United and Chippa United in second last position. The Citizens come into the contest lacking three key performers as Kermit Erasmus, Surprise Ralani and defender Edmilson are ruled out with injury. Nonetheless, coach Benni McCarthy has the belief his team can claim all three points, saying: ‘Now our team is in full swing. Everybody understands the philosophy, everybody understands the way we play and the mentality we try to create here. The players are gelling much better. ‘We might not always play the style of football we want to, but we still have that compactness and that mental toughness where we can grind out the ugly results like we did against SuperSport.’ Baroka have made a number of major changes to their squad in January as Richard Matloga, Mpho Kgwaswane, Toriq Losper, Bheki Maliba, Thabo Moseki, Charles Molapo, Hussein Shabani and Zama Dlamini were all released. Saturday night’s action at the Cape Town Stadium is set to get underway from 20:15 in the Mother City.
