Cape Town - Cape Town City FC veteran goalkeeper Shu-Aib Walters said the new kids on the block intend to make the Cape Town Stadium their own slaughter house throughout the PSL campaign following their MTN8 quarter-final win over Kaizer Chiefs last week.

City continued with their dream start to the 2016/17 top flight campaign after they eliminated Amakhosi from the R8m competition with a 1-0 victory on Friday courtesy of Matthew Sim’s 6th minute strike. 

The 34-year-old shot stopper praised his defence for standing their ground to keep the Phefeni Glamour Boys at bay for the duration of the match.

Walters also admitted that he always prepare himself for a busy ninety minutes whenever he clashes with the PSL 'big three' and earned himself Man-of-the-Match accolade against Chiefs.

“As a goalkeeper whenever you play against Chiefs, Pirates and Sundowns you’ll have your work cut-out for you,” said Walters.

“And you obviously have to prepare your focus for 95 minutes or so but I’m really grateful to my defence and the entire teams at large.

“They took advantage and capitalised on the only chance we got and we won the match at the end of the day.

“We really want to make the Cape Town stadium our fortress; we want all teams to know that it’ll be tough playing against us in Cape Town.

“That’s why we have managed two consecutive wins at home up to so far.”

City will face Bidvest Wits in a two-legged semi-final encounter and the dates and venues are yet to be confirmed.
