The last time the two sides met, City ended the encounter as the victors with a 3-2 win.

Here is what Mokwena had to say about coming up against the Citizens in their third DStv Premiership showdown.

“Cape Town City have a clear profile, respective of their opposition. Regardless of whether they are playing at home or away. They are well-coached with a structure that allows them to be able to be dominant on the ball. 

“They have players to initiate attacks from the back, Fielies (Taariq) and Leeuwenburgh (Peter) are very important for them. Their best player so far in the past three games is Mduduzi Mdantsane as he has bought a different dimension for them this season.”
