Kaizer Chiefs v Cape Town City

Kaizer Chiefs will look to make it three wins in a row in the Premiership when they face high-flying Cape Town City in Wednesday's clash at FNB Stadium.

City head coach Benni McCarthy has admitted that Chiefs are a team he is wary after three losses in a row against the Glamour Boys.

The Citizens have lost 4-1, 1-0 and 2-0 to Amakhosi while McCarthy has been in charge with two of those matches coming on home soil at the Cape Town Stadium.

As such, Bafana Bafana's all-time leading scorer is hoping to end this unwanted record.

He told reporters: "Chiefs is another story, it is a team that I haven't beaten as a coach yet, three attempts and three losses, it's not going to be easy, but as confident as I am in my team, I'm sure since the arrival of (Ernst) Middendorp they have become more organized.

"They are more solid and disciplined, they are a decent unit so it is not going to be an easy game but for me my main priority now is getting my players recovered and see where the niggles are and I am delighted to have Surprise (Ralani) back from a long lay down.

"Kermit (Erasmus) is back as well, (Edmilson) Dove has come back and then I have (Ebrahim) Seedat coming back from suspension. We are missing (Taariq) Fielies, but it's okay, we manage."

Meanwhile, Chiefs come into the contest having needed extra time to see off minnows Tornado 1-0 in the Nedbank Cup.

However, the club are struggling with a lengthy injury list as Itumeleng Khune, Lebogang Manyama, Joseph Molangoane, Mulomowandau Mathoho, Philani Zulu and Lorenzo Gordinho are all side-lined.

For the away outfit, Ralani, Seedat, Erasmus and Dove are fit again though Fielies is out. Kickoff is 19:30 in Johannesburg.
