Teams: Cape Town City v Black Leopards
Date: 24 January 2020
Venue: Cape Town Stadium
Cape Town City host fellow strugglers Black Leopards in the Absa Premiership at Cape Town Stadium on Friday evening.
The Citizens won for the first time in four matches after beating Bidvest Wits 2-0 thanks to goals from Kermit Erasmus and Craig Martin last Saturday, although the latter was sent sent off in the closing stages of the clash.
Jan Olde Riekerink's charges moved three points clear of the relegation zone, and they will be hoping steer further away from the bottom congestion.
Lidoda Duvha, meanwhile, halted a four-match losing streak by holding Kaizer Chiefs to a 1-1 draw courtesy of a stunning free-kick from Mogakolodi Ngele last Saturday.
However, Cavin Johnson is still searching for his first victory since taking charge of his first match at the beginning of the year.
Leopards are precariously lying third-from-bottom on the log, equal on points with Polokwane City and AmaZulu but they can take hope in the fact that they won the first round clash 2-1 in November last year at Thohoyandou Stadium.
Here's how they line up:
City: 1. Leeuwenburg, 2. Mkhize, 15. Cupido, 27. Potouridis, 5. Edmilson, 19. Putsche, 8. Makola, 26. Nodada, 11. Ralani, 23. Lakay, 9. Erasmus.

Subs: 32. Muleka, 3. Ndou, 9. Andrianarimanana, 25. Mokoena, 27. Ng'ambi, 11. Musonda, 30.Mhlongo.
