Starting XI: Cape Town City v Polokwane City

Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Cape Town City v Polokwane City
 
Date: 23 August 2016
 
Venue: Cape Town Stadium
 
New Absa Premiership outfit Cape Town City host Polokwane City in their first league clash of the season.
 
 
The newly established Cape Town side have retained the majority of the Mpumalanga Black Aces squad, after owner John Comitis bought the franchise, rebranded, and moved to the Mother City.
 
Coach Eric Tinkler is keen to start with a win in front of the team's home support in their debut PSL tie, and may look to the likes of new signing Lehlohonolo Majoro to lead the charge.
 
Meanwhile, Rise and Shine are also embarking on a new adventure under the charge of recently appointed coach Luc Eymael.
 
Polokwane finished last season in 13th position and have already been labelled as potential relegation battlers.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Cape Town City: 41 Motloung, 4 Kobola, 3 Roda, 27 Gumede, 12 Modiba, 23 Matsi, 7 Sim, 10 Jayiya, 18 Brown, 11 Ngoma, 45 Majoro.
 
Polokwane City: 1 Chigova, 2 Semenya, 19 Ndou, 23 Tema, 22 Mbonani, 21 Seabi, 17 Ramagalela, 14 Manaka, 27 Mncwango, 10 Tlolane, 8 Maluleke.
