Team News: Cape Town Spurs
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the sole fitness concern for the Cape Town Spurs manager to be concerned about from a near full-strength group. Boitumelo Radiopane (Fractured Foot) is out of contention.
Team News: Golden Arrows
Due to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, the Golden Arrows manager Steve Komphela does not have any fitness worries to report before this match.
In our opinion, Cape Town Spurs may find it difficult to register a score against this Golden Arrows side who should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re therefore expecting a hard-fought 0-1 victory for Golden Arrows at the conclusion of the game.
We’ll see what happens.
