Sixth-placed Cape Town City will face Absa Premiership log leaders Kaizer Chiefs at the Newlands Stadium on Tuesday night, knowing that they could leapfrog the Amakhosi with a victory.

Both teams are unbeaten after three games, and City’s coach Benni McCarthy is expecting a good quality competitive game.

McCarthy was pleased with how his team played in their 1-1 draw against Mamelodi Sundowns last week, and he hopes they can build on that performance.

McCarthy says he wants his team to be consistent this season, and says they will need to be at their best to beat a Chiefs team who are starting to find their rhythm.

Chiefs have won four of the last five encounters against City, something McCarthy hopes to rectify.

McCarthy says his team needs to be focused for the whole game on Tuesday, and cannot afford to play in patches.
