Cape Town - Cape Town City captain Lebogang Manyama says his team are looking to move on from their humiliating 4-0 loss at the hands of Platinum Stars in their Premiership clash on Wednesday.
The Citizens were still suffering from their Telkom Knockout final fatigue, when they were on the wrong end of a thrashing by Cavin Johnson's side, three days after edging SuperSport United 2-1 to clinch their first ever silverware.
"The weekend game took a lot from us, mentally and physically," be told KickOff. "But we cannot look for excuses I think we were just bad as a team.
"Unfortunately we didn't have the legs to match them. Four-nil was a bad reflection and we accept it. Talking about it won't help, we can only learn from such things."
In a rematch of the cup final, The Citizens will host Matsatsantsa at Cape Town Stadium on Friday.
Stuart Baxter's men have a chance to overtake City to the summit of the standings with a win as they are three points behind the Citizens.
Kick off is scheduled for 18:00.
