Cape Town - Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy is delighted to see his
side return to winning and scoring form after they defeated Chippa
United 2-0 last weekend.
The Citizens ended a run of four defeats in a row against the Chilli
Boys as goals from Ayanda Patosi and Lyle Lakay ensured the three points
went to the outfit from the Mother City.
The result sees City move up to sixth in the table whilst Chippa
dropped to 11th and subsequently parted ways with coach Teboho Moloi.
Nonetheless, McCarthy takes the view that the victory is much needed
and added he would not need to call on his late grandmother to come and
convert chances in attack.
After a recent defeat to Baroka, the 40-year-old suggested his
deceased family member would be more effective at finding the back of
He said: "We've played some nice football, but obviously the lack of
goals has been disappointing, so now my grandma doesn't have to come
from her grave and come and score goals for us.
"For me I don't really care if it's a 1-0...as long as we do the
right things, and we play according to strategy and what I want from
them, and they just give me everything and enjoy themselves out there,
then I’m happy." His side are next in action on Wednesday in the CAF Confederations
Cup first round when they take on Mozambique side Costa do Sol in
Maputo. The second leg is in Cape Town on 16 March.
