Cape Town City appear to be confident of the lessons learnt from their loss to Kaizer Chiefs earlier in the season, with the team believing that things could change for the better for them in their cup match today.
One win from eight matches can be viewed by many as a disastrous run, but not according to goalkeeper Peter Leeuwenburgh, who says the Mother City outfit is in no crisis, though he admits the disappointment of not winning.
Just like the last time when City lost to Chiefs at Newlands Stadium, Leeuwenburgh is expected to be in goals for Benni McCarthy’s side for their Telkom Knockout Last 16 match on Saturday, with the shot-stopper having signed a new contract with the club yesterday (Friday).
“Obviously, it’s not nice, because we play football to win games. But it’s not like we feel that we’re having a crisis or something – not at all,” Leeuwenburgh said to the media earlier in the week.
The Dutch is confident that the work put in by the team in training during the week will pay off against Chiefs.
“We know that it’s a once-off game, so we have to win it. But we will just go into the game like any other game. I think playing Kaizer Chiefs at home doesn’t need any extra motivation. Obviously, we watched that game (the league match in August), and we know what to take from the first half, and we know what to improve on from the second half – that’s very obvious. So, the only thing that we can do is to start like we did at Newlands and continue doing that in the second half,” the short-stopper commented.
