By Soccer Laduma - Sep 19, 2017 10:47 AM

Cape Town City will welcome back one of their midfielders this evening when they lock horns with Orlando Pirates.

The Cape Town-based club was without their regular midfield man, Roland Putsche, during their Absa Premiership encounter against Kaizer Chiefs last week, with the club choosing to rest the player after he received stitches to his face.

However, Head Coach Benni McCarthy will be relieved to have one more midfielder at his disposal, following Teko Modise’s injury, as Putsche has been included in the team’s matchday squad for today.

City will lock horns with the Buccaneers at the Orlando Stadium this evening, where the likes of Head Coach McCarthy, Lehlohonolo Majoro, Robyn Johannes and Tshepo Gumede will be reunited with their former side.

A win for the Cape Town-based club will take them right to the top of the league standings, where they could overtake Golden Arrows, Maritzburg United, Baroka FC and Pirates.

The match is scheduled to get underway this evening, September 19 at 19h30.

I was born with Orlando Pirates blood in me and also a big fan of Benni. We have one of the most decorated coach in the country and we hope to have experience advantage over the ever rise and deadliest Benni tonight. We can't afford to read anything from his game and Chiefs because his army is deadliest than that of Napoleon Bonaparte. We have youth and experience in our arsenal and we can't afford to take Benni's army lightly

This game will be toughest for Pirates thus far. CPC has a lot of quality players all with a point to prove. I hope we have a plan to contain Ednilson, he looks very impressive going forward. Patotsi, Modise, Putsche and Lakay should make things really interesting in the middle of the park. I guess against CPC attack will be the best form of defense, we need to be weary of their counter attacks though (they have proven to be very effective with those). Sitting back will only do a lot of damage as they have players who can take excellent free kicks
