Head Coach Benni McCarthy will want his entire squad fit to face former City coach, Erick Tinkler’s side, who will be fired up to clinch their first piece of silverware following the departure of Stuart Baxter at the helm. 

An official from the club has since revealed that the City medical team are monitoring the progress of Lehlohonolo Majoro, who had a knock on his knee and Victor Obinna who felt some discomfort in his groin area. However, both strikers are looking to be fully fit for Saturday’s encounter.

Head Coach McCarthy has also received a boost in his midfield after the club revealed that Roland Putsche will be available for selection after the player missed out on two of the team’s previous Absa Premiership encounter.
