CT City Edging Closer To Clinching The Title

Cape Town City has just eight games left as they chase the Absa Premiership title, but can they go all the way and make their dreams of winning the title a reality?

The Mother City-based head coach, Eric Tinkler, has reiterated on numerous occasions that his side is not focused on winning the league, but rather focusing on taking each game as it comes. He is, however, well aware of the team’s position on the Absa Premiership league standings.

After 22 league games played in the 2016/17 season so far, City is placed first on the log with 42 points.

“As I have told everybody already, it is all about taking it one game at a time you know. If you think about the title now you will end up having big hopes and not achieving on the field. So, it is all about taking it one game at a time and seeing where it takes us (City),” City’s Bhongolethu Jayiya told Soccer Laduma. 

The Mother City-based side have been in impressive form since the beginning of their inaugural campaign, with the likes of Lebogang Manyama, Aubrey Ngoma, Lehlohonolo Majoro and Jayiya playing an instrumental role in getting results over the PSL’s top sides.

Despite rivals such as Bidvest Wits, SuperSport United and Mamelodi Sundowns currently having two, one and four games in hand respectively, City currently has a one-point advantage over second placed, Bidvest Wits, who will be travelling to Cape Town this month.

City is yet to suffer league defeat to the top five in the Absa Premiership and will keep that in the back of their minds as they prepare to face the Clever Boys, Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United in their upcoming fixtures.

On the other hand, Tinkler’s side will also look to seek revenge against Platinum Stars, who defeated the high-flying City Boys 4-0 in December last year.

In addition, City will look to come back from their previous losses to Free State Stars and Golden Arrows, while aiming to go again and claim another league victory over Maritzburg United and Polokwane City respectively.
