Its MTN 8 time and Kaizer Chiefs will be looking for their first win of the 2016/17 season

Cape Town City FC are on high after beating Polokwane City 2 -0 on Tuesday at the same venue in their first league game

The naturena based side did have such luck after they lost 2 -1 to Braamfontein side Bidvest Wits on Tuesday

The newly revamped side Cape Town City FC side is led by Eric Tinkler and Ian Taylor.

Amakhosi will be travelling to the mother city, the former alternative ground of 2015/16 season

Eric Tinkler has always had the better of Steve Kompela and his side will be looking to make two in a row with Kaizer Chiefs.

Against Bidvest Wits, Steve Khompela’side struggled to contain the Clever Boys and that left their defense panicking

Amakhosi Midfielders were too deep even Willard Katsande looked unsettled and the right back Kgotso Moleko had tough game

Elias Pelembe and Thulani Hlatswayo capitalized on Kaizer Chiefs mistakes to earn Clever Boys maximum points

Against Cape Town City, it will be different ball game for both teams but Steve Khompela and Mr Panstil have to come with solid game plan to win that game at all cost to win hearts of their supporters

Amakhosi players old and new have to start delivering to avoid what happened last season

Coach Khompela this season secured players of his choice as well as his technical team now results are expected from the team he got

However on the other side former Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler still have a point to prove that it was not a fluke to beat Polokwane City and as well prove that Mr Committis didn’t make mistake to assign him as club coach

Cape Town City FC have assembled good squad that is up for challenge this season though not that big squad but its well balanced and it may shock many teams

They have the likes of Lehlohonolo Majoro, Tshepo Gumede, Aubrey Ngoma and Lebogang Manyama

It’s upon Steve Khompela and his soldiers to keep Cape Town City at bay or still let their fans and management down by not winning

Tinkler’s side win in this encounter will be highly appreciated by his boss John Commits that they are on the right track

Although might be too soon to say that but a wins on first game is important as its sets the tone for the season and coach has more of his time plotting downfall of other team’s without panicking, Friday night it’s date between Eric Tinkler and Steve Khompela
