Black Leopards v Cape Town City

Cape Town City will be targeting more of the same when they travel to fellow stragglers Black Leopards in the Absa Premiership on Sunday afternoon.

The Citizens began life without head coach Benni McCarthy in midweek as they bounced back to winning ways after coming out on top against Polokwane City in an eight-goal thriller at Cape Town Stadium.

Kermit Erasmus bagged a brace, while Siphelele Mthembu, Mpho Makola and Edmilsdon also got their names on the scoresheet.

Jan Olde Riekerink was announced as the former Bafana Bafana striker's successor at the Citizens, and the Dutch coach is expected to be in the dugout for Sunday's encounter.

A second straight win will undoubtedly be on the agenda for City as it will see them edge further away from the drop zone ahead of the international break.

Leopards, meanwhile, welcome City to the Thohoyandou Stadium as they look to get back to winning ways on home soil after a 2-1 defeat to Sundowns at the start of October.

In fact, their home form makes for worrying reading, with Lidoda Duvha collecting just four points from their last five games.

However, Leopards will have to make do without the services of first-team regulars Andiswa Ndawonde (injury) and Khuliso Mudau (suspension) as head coach Luc Eymael looks to guide his charges back to the winning trail.
