Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs head coach Steve Komphela is wary of Cape Town City and the way they set up their attacking play.

Eric Tinkler's charges are becoming known for the way they can quickly turn a game around especially with the likes of Lebogang Manyama and Aubrey Ngoma leading their counter attacks.

Amakhosi will travel to the Mother City for a top of the table clash against the Citizens on Tuesday evening at Cape Town Stadium.

Komphela believes that his charges will need to be careful and remain focus if they are to have any chances of getting maximum points on the night.

"They are lethal on transition," said Komphela as quoted by KickOff website.

"They set things up nicely. They know how to screen and as soon they get the ball they come straight at you, and that is one thing we need to be careful about.

"Based on our game model we need to be careful that it shouldn’t play into their hands.

"But one thing we know about them on transition, they will come at you like they have never seen a goal post before."

Kick off is at 19:30.
