Cape Town City
Cape Town City won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 2-1 Premier Division defeat last time out to SuperSport United.
It has been seldom in recent times that Cape Town City haven’t conceded. In fact, Blue and Gold Army have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 9 goals during that time.
Last time out, Moroka Swallows drew 0-0 in the Premier Division tie with AmaZulu.
A series of resolute performances by the Moroka Swallows defenders has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their last 6 fixtures overall. During the same time, their own forwards have managed to score 5. That kind of pattern might not follow through into this game, however.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Moroka Swallows:
- haven't been defeated in their previous 8 away league matches. Impressive, to say the least.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 2 matches in the league.

Aubrey Ngoma (Hamstring Injury) and Edmilson Dove (Knee Surgery) will not be taking part for Cape Town manager Benni McCarthy.
Team News: Moroka Swallows
Owing to a completely healthy squad ready to go, Moroka Swallows boss Fani Madida does not have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match.
We’re inclined to think that Moroka Swallows and Cape Town City could both end up scoring in what appears to be a good match-up, with little separating these two teams.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. We’re therefore anticipating a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 score when the referee blows the full-time whistle.
