Cape Town City head coach, Benni McCarthy has revealed that he would like to get five wins over Bidvest Wits but admits that it won’t be easy.

City will host The Students at the Athlone Stadium on Saturday, February 24, with Head Coach McCarthy revealing that he wants to avoid another dip in his side’s form and go all out and try to make it five wins over the Clever Boys.  

“You can never be too confident when you’re up against Hunty (Gavin Hunt) you know, the coach is experienced and obviously you see Wits is slowly but surely picking up and people are not realising that they are making steps forward down there and they are gaining confidence,” McCarthy told the media.

“So, I think, we have given them four hidings so far and the fifth one it is highly possible but of course we are going to go out there and especially me, losing three on the trot again, for me, the first one – our dip in the season, we already have one, we can’t afford to have another dip at the most crucial stage when it’s the straight one to the line and you can see it there and (we are) edging closer and closer and now we want to have a dip and mess all our hard work that we’ve done the whole season.

“So yeah, I want to go in there and make it five out five but, it is not going to be easy because we are going to be up against a Wits team that is determined and a Gavin Hunt that is probably going to say to their players that if they lose for the fifth time to us, half of them are going to be looking for new clubs next season.  

“So, hopefully, The Students can get the last one, then next season I don’t mind losing – then at least I know I’ve got five over (him),” he added.
