Cape Town - Cape Town City assistant coach Vasili Manousakis believes forward Kermit Erasmus is getting better as this season comes to an end.

Erasmus signed for City in December and has scored three goals in his last four league games with two of those being match-winners - against defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits.

The Bafana striker will again be a key player for the Citizens when they take on Kaizer Chiefs in a Nedbank Cup last eight clash on Sunday and Manousakis is looking forward to what Erasmus produces.

Manousakis was quoted by the IOL website as saying: "He's a special player. His strikes against Sundowns and Wits showed what he's capable of on his day.

"He's getting stronger by the game and I expect to see him score a lot more."

Benni McCarthy's team are also still in with a shout for league glory as they are three points behind leaders Sundowns.

McCarthy captured his first trophy as a coach when City claimed the MTN top-eight title earlier in this campaign.
