Cape Town - Cape Town City midfielder Teko Modise believes there is more to come from the Absa Premiership title challengers when the league resumes in 2018.

At the mid-season break the Blue and Gold Army are currently in second place, four points adrift of leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

This was achieved with consecutive 1-0 victories in the final two fixtures against Amazulu and the Brazilians respectively - which ended a four-game winless run.

And Modise feels if they can maintain that sort of performance levels in the new year like the did at the start of the 2017/18 season - the Cape Town-based side are within a chance of domestic glory.

"It's been a roller-coaster season. We are still a young team with a lot of potential as well," he told reporters. "So, we are actually glad that we won matches in the opening matches of the season.

"We are still in the mix of things. We hope to continue to grow and get results."

After a six-year trophy-laden spell at Masanadawana, the 35-year-old opted to join Benni McCarthy's Citizens and the veteran playmaker concedes it's been a seamless adjustment.

"I've been received well by my teammates, the chairman and the coaching staff. The reception has been good and the club has made it easy for me to adjust to life in Cape Town."

City travel to Royal Bafokeng Stadium for a clash against Platinum Stars on Saturday, January 6 when the Absa Premiership returns.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
