Chiefs will no doubt hope to produce an improved performance
following their unconvincing 1-0 win over minnows Tornado in a Nedbank
Cup Round-of-32 tie last weekend.
Middendorp has already scouted City as he was in attendance during the Citizens' 2-0 victory over SuperSport United on Saturday.
The German said: "We definitely have to be at our best. I saw them in
Cape Town on Saturday, and I had seen them before [as well].
"They have a very structured way about them, and I understand what
they are capable of. They have a quick transition with equally quick
"I don't think it is so much about the individuals – that's not as important.
"It is about their general approach, how they build-up‚ their
movements and how they use the deeper hole in the midfield. For me it
was important to see how they structure their game.
"But let's wait and see. We have to first see which of our players
will be fresh enough to bring in after our cup game on Sunday."
Kick-off is at 19:30.
