While Benni McCarthy bemoaned the lack of depth in his defensive department, it seems that his number one centre-back could still come to the rescue.
After Cape Town City’s 2-1 loss to Kaizer Chiefs in their last Absa Premiership clash, McCarthy was doubtful that Taariq Fielies would be making a return to his set-up before January.
At the time he made it no secret that he would love the club to try and bolster his defence with a new signing, with Siya sources indicating at that point that McCarthy could have been eyeing a return for Robyn Johannes.
However, after the window closed, the Citizens made no other additions to their defence, but it seems that Fielies could possibly return in the coming days.
City confirmed on their official Twitter account that the defender could return before the end of the month, along with Thabo Nodada who could be back as soon as this weekend.
