Benni: Citizens are starting to fire

Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy says he’s not worried by his side’s potentially tricky trip to Polokwane City tonight.

The Citizens play two away matches in the space of four days, starting with a visit to Rise and Shine, a side known for being resilient on their own turf.

City were in good nick heading into the FIFA international break, having won back-to-back games in their last two league fixtures, and played out a 1-1 draw the last time these two sides met in Polokwane in April.

And McCarthy is confident his side can go one better this time.

“I think the few times we’ve played Polokwane, they’ve been in superb form, but then we’ve gone there, and should’ve come away with all three points,” McCarthy said.

“Even last time, when we played on that small stadium pitch next to the big stadium … you know when they want to collect points, they like to take teams to the Old Peter Mokaba instead of the big World Cup Stadium where their games are supposed to be played.

“But we’ve managed them okay in the past and should have come away with all three points – we got a point there, and I’m confident that with the form we’re in, we’re starting to fire.”

City have scored six goals in their last two matches, and despite Rise and Shine losing just one of their last nine games, McCarthy feels his charges will provide a stern test for the home side.

“We are starting to gel and find the back of the net now, and we’ve used the international break wisely to work on a lot of things so that come Polokwane, we’re in the mood not just to gain points but score more goals,” he said.
