The Buccaneers take on City at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday evening for their Nedbank Cup Last 16 match. 

Memela, who scored two goals against Kaizer Chiefs during Bucs’ most recent match, says their match against Benni McCarthy’s side will not be easy.

“It’s not going to be easy playing against Cape Town City away, they are a good side playing good football and with a very clever coach in Benni McCarthy. They play attacking football and we expect them to come hard at us from start to finish,” Memela told Pirates’ official website.

“That being said, we also have a very good technical team in Coach Micho and Coach Rhulani. We’ve had the whole week to study them carefully and come up with a plan of how to deal with City on the day. For us, the preparations are two-fold.

"Firstly, we have studied the opponent and tried to identify weaknesses that we can exploit during the match, and secondly, we have worked on our own game and performance to make sure that regardless of what comes our way on matchday, we are capable of dealing with it,” he said.  

The much-anticipated clash is scheduled for 19:30.
