Cape Town - Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy has
admitted that Kaizer Chiefs are a team he is wary of following three losses in
a row against the Glamour Boys.
City have lost 4-1, 1-0 and 2-0 to Amakhosi while McCarthy
has been at the helm with two of those matches coming at home at the Cape Town
With the Citizens set to take on Chiefs on Wednesday at FNB
Stadium in an Absa Premiership clash, Bafana Bafana's all-time leading scorer
is hoping to end this unwanted record.
He told Soccer Laduma website: "Chiefs is another
story, it is a team that I haven't beaten as a coach yet, three attempts and
three losses, it's not going to be easy, but as confident as I am in my team,
I'm sure since the arrival of (Ernst) Middendorp they have become more
"They are more solid and disciplined, they are a decent
unit, so it is not going to be an easy game but for me my main priority now is
getting my players recovered and see where the niggles are, and I am delighted
to have Surprise (Ralani) back from a long lay down.
"Kermit (Erasmus) is back as well, Dove has come back
and then I have (Ebrahim) Seedat coming back from suspension. We are missing
(Taariq) Fielies, but it's okay, we manage."
City advanced to the Nedbank Cup last-16 on Saturday with a
2-0 win over struggling SuperSport United.
Wednesday's PSL action against Amakhosi is set to get
underway from 19:30 in Johannesburg.
