FSS A Must Win For City’s Title Hopes

Cape Town City will face a relegation-threatened side this evening in a must-win encounter to keep their title hopes alive.

The Mother City-based club, who are currently third placed on the Absa Premiership league standings, will welcome Free State Stars to the Athlone Stadium this evening, May 05, where both sides will be eager to claim three points, however, for different objectives.

As it stands, City will look to remain comfortable in the top three of the league standings, which will guarantee them a spot in one of the CAF competitions next year.

On the other hand, Ea Lla Koto are just one point away from the drop and failure to secure hree points in tonight’s encounter will be detrimental in their relegation battle.

City will go into the encounter eager to get back on track following their loss to Maritzburg United, with the likes of Lebogang Manyama and Aubrey Ngoma looking to get back to business with their attacking threat up front. 

However, at the back, the team will be without the defender, Tshepo Gumede, due to suspension, which could see Joseph Adjei partnering with Robyn Johannes in the centre-back position.

“I think, missing Tshepo in this game is a big loss for us, he is one of the reasons that we have been successful, I think he has proved again this season that he is one of the best centre-backs around,” Johannes told Soccer Laduma.

“I think losing him in this game is a big blow but, we are a team, someone else will need to step up and do the job. So, like I said, big game for us, big opportunity for us to stay in the mix and stay in the title chase which is important,” he added.
