The emergency medical procedure forced McCarthy to miss the Citizens' courageous come-from-behind 2-2 draw at Orlando Pirates on Wednesday evening.

CT City officials confirmed to TimesLive that Stacey underwent a successful operation and is recovering well.

The City squad have been given the weekend off and will resume training in preparation for their MTN8 final rematch against holders SuperSport United at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.

The 2018 MTN8 final has been widely billed as 'Act II' of the battle between Matsatsantsa and Cape Town City following last season’s epic final which was decided on penalties.

At stake is the prestigious trophy together with R8 million prize money for the winner.

The loser goes home with nothing bar their appearance fee.
