Cape Town- Despite their much needed victory over Free State Stars on Friday, Cape Town City defender Thato Mokeke has expressed his displeasure at a manner the Citizens performed on the night.
The PSL rookies defeated the Struggling Ea Lla Koto 1-0 in a gruelling Absa Premiership clash played at the Cape Town Stadium thanks to Judas Moseamedi strike.
The 26-year-old man marker however insisted that grabbing all maximum points was significant for the Mother City based outfit to keep their title hopes alive.
“Tonight (Friday) it was very tough for us,” said Mokeke.
“We didn’t have a good win. It was not our normal game that we played but at least we got the desired results.
“So that’s the most important thing. Yes we are not happy with our performance but at least we have the points in the bag.
“And they’ll help us push our title competitors above us.”
At the start of a 2016/17 top flight campaign, the Citizens mandate was to clinch a top three finish, and they have already lifted the Telkom Knockout Cup along the way. Mokeke also revealed that their Absa Premiership title dream is still alive as they intend to compete in continental competitions next year.
City are currently lying second on the table with three games remaining.
“Yes we are still dreaming of winning the league title this season,” he insisted
“We want to try and win the league and compete in the CAF Champions league next year.
“And that is our goal as a team.”
City will travel to Pretoria for their next tough assignment against SuperSport United on Tuesday.
