Cape Town - Wits striker Lehlohonolo Majoro says the Students will not be taking Cape Town City lightly this weekend even though the Citizens were beaten by Sundowns on Wednesday.

City went down 3-2 to Masandawana at Loftus with Wits no doubt close observers ahead of their showdown at the Bidvest Stadium on Saturday.

The game is vital as Wits are currently second in the table, trailing Sundowns by just a point as the title race goes into the final stretch.

Cape Town City are also still not totally out of the race as they sit in fourth place on the log and one feels they have to beat Wits and Sundowns, who they play again next Tuesday, to have a chance at snatching the trophy.

In quotes published on the IOL website, Majoro said: "Cape Town City have good players in their own right, and they've also proven that because they are not far from the top of the league.

"We've been training throughout the week and practising our tactics.

"I am quite sure that all my teammates watched the game against Sundowns and identified a thing or two that will work to our advantage."

Majoro, of course, is a former player at Cape Town City and the forward says he enjoyed his time at the coast but will not have mixed feelings taking on his previous employers.

Major, as Majoro is known to his football industry, has played for five different clubs in the top-flight, including both Soweto giants - Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

Majoro continued: "In this industry of football, you are never guaranteed a team, there’s no team that you can call your home.

"I was at Cape Town City and they welcomed me and I was very happy that I won a trophy with them.

"But like Chiefs and Pirates, every time I compete against them I give it my all because I will be representing the team that I'm playing for at that particular time, and such games don't need emotions, because when you get them that’s when you make mistakes."
