Cape Town - Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy
says the 10-day break between games has been good for his side as they
prepare to take on Polokwane City on Friday.
The Citizens' last outing was a 2-1 victory over Sundowns on 5 March
and three days before that they beat Bidvest Wits away from home.
The two wins have put City firmly in the PSL title race and, ahead of
the match against Rise and Shine, McCarthy has welcomed the opportunity
for him and his players to recharge.
McCarthy said, according to the IOL website: "A break is what this team needed. My players are exhausted.
"It's not like I am spoiled for choice where I have (Thabo) Nodada,
(Roland) Putsche and Kouassi (Kouadja), Kwanda Mngonyama also got
injured in the Wits game.
"So for me, any break is welcomed because that would give me a couple of days for Kwanda to return.
"If I can recover one of the injured players, that's nice. And I
wanted to give the players time off with their family, wives and
The Citizens go into the clash at the Cape Town Stadium in third
position on the PSL table, only four points behind leaders Sundowns.
