Riekerink: We’re Ready
Posted: 16 October 2020

Cape Town City head coach Jan Olde Riekerink is looking forward to a tasty affair against Orlando Pirates in the MTN8 this weekend out at Orlando Stadium, with the Dutchman giving a lowdown of their preparations prior to this match, saying;

“We had our top-scorer Kermit leaving us, so we have new players; Reed – goalkeeper, Mashego – left-back and Ngoma who is of course returning to Cape Town City.

“Either than that, I’m very happy because most of the players have stayed and it suits us with the type of way we play; their very good together and we will have a good season.

“We had a very short pre-season where we played friendlies; last weekend we played Stellenbosch at the Cape Town Stadium – which was a good preparation, and now in the present we are going to face a good group of Orlando Pirates,” concluded the 57-year-old.

The Citizens last lifted this trophy in 2018 out in Durban and will be quietly confident of sneaking past Orlando Pirates in their own backyard.
