Cape Town City will look to put their MTN8 disappointment behind them when they welcome Chippa United to Cape Town Stadium in the DStv Premiership on Wednesday evening.
Eric Tinkler’s side will be hoping to return to winning ways after they narrowly missed out on clinching the MTN8 title following their 3-2 defeat on penalties in the final against eventual champions Mamelodi Sundowns.
But in terms of the DStv Premiership, City defeated Lamontville Golden Arrows 4-3 in a seven game thriller at the Cape Town Stadium in their last league encounter when Fagrie Lakay, Thamsanqa Mkhize and Mduduzi Mdantsane’s goals was enough to see off Arrows late surge for a point.
Meanwhile, Gavin Hunt’s men are hoping to find their form in the league as they are currently on a seven-game winless run, having drawn three games and conceded four defeats, with their last and only win coming on the opening day of the campaign when they edged Sekhukhune 1-0 at the Makhulong Stadium on 21 August 2021.
In their previous DStv Premiership encounter, the Chilli Bays were forced to share the spoils with Swallows FC after they played out to a goalless draw at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium.
When the two sides last locked horns, City walked away with a point at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium after they played out to a goalless draw against Chippa in East London on 3 March 2021
The Citizens will head into the clash in 11th place with nine points after claiming two wins, three draws and two defeats, while the Chilli Boys are placed 14th on the log with six points after eight games played thus far.
