Benni Given Midfielder Boost
Cape Town City's Benni McCarthy Given Midfielder Boost
Cape Town City will welcome back one of their midfielders this evening when they lock horns with Orlando Pirates.
The Cape Town-based club was without their regular midfield man, Roland Putsche, during their Absa Premiership encounter against Kaizer Chiefs last week, with the club choosing to rest the player after he received stitches to his face.
However, Head Coach Benni McCarthy will be relieved to have one more midfielder at his disposal, following Teko Modise’s injury, as Putsche has been included in the team’s matchday squad for today.
City will lock horns with the Buccaneers at the Orlando Stadium this evening, where the likes of Head Coach McCarthy, Lehlohonolo Majoro, Robyn Johannes and Tshepo Gumede will be reunited with their former side.
A win for the Cape Town-based club will take them right to the top of the league standings, where they could overtake Golden Arrows, Maritzburg United, Baroka FC and Pirates.
The match is scheduled to get underway this evening, September 19 at 19h30.
