Starting XI: Baroka v CT City
Absa Premiership Starting XI: Baroka v Cape Town City 27 February 2018
Teams: Baroka FC v Cape Town City
Date: 27 January 2018
Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium
Cape Town City will be looking to end their losing run in the Absa Premiership when they take on Baroka FC at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The Citizens’ slim title hopes started to fade away when they lost to Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs in two successive league games.
Their recent 2-1 loss to Bidvest Wits this past weekend stretched their winless run in the league to three straight matches and almost certainly ended their hopes of securing a first league title.
As a result, the Mother City-based side have dropped to sixth on the table with 31 points from 22 games.
Bakgaga are also experiencing a drought of their own as they are winless in their last five league matches.
Baroka drew 1-1 with neighbors Polokwane City in the Limpopo derby over the weekend and will be looking for a victory, the last of which was back in mid-January when they beat AmaZulu 2-0.
The Limpopo outfit are breathing down the neck of City in seventh place with 28 points from 22 matches, three points behind the Citizens.
Here's how they line up:
Baroka: 33. Dlamini, 15. Mothupa, 7. Chawapiwa, 24. Banda, 2. Kgoetyane, 23. Kgaswane, 8. Mdantshane, 4. Madubanya, 29. Mohwatseleng, 12. Motupa. 17. Ngalande.
Subs: 16. Vries, 25. Sodi, 28. Makgaga, 18. Mapheto, 14. Mosele, 26. Rethabile, 13. Sidumo.
