The Chilli boys will battle it out with Cape Town City on Sunday, 22 of October 2017 at Sisa Dukashe stadium in East London. This match comes after a promising draw with Maritzburg United, where the home side was denied by the post 5 times at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
Post match on Wednesday night, Coach Moloi expressed his expectations about the type of game they expect from the citizens, especially after their back to back defeats in recent cup and league matches.
“We go into to this game knowing that they have lost two games, they won’t take this one lying down, and that is why I say it’s probably one of the most difficult upcoming games” said Moloi.
“Coach Benni McCarthy was once a player under my stewardship as an assistant coach at Pirates, he will definitely want to prove to me that he has grown and has sharpened his knowledge of the game”, continued Moloi.
The coach urged his charges not lose hope, and continue to want to score goals despite the goalless draw with the Team of choice. “The team is on the right path, the players just need to hit the back of the net, but I take positives from the fact that they are hitting the upright for now which means they are close” said Teboho.
This promises to be a mouth-watering encounter as both teams will be looking for nothing but a win, and therefore the Pride of Eastern Cape’s supporters are urged to come out in their numbers to support the Chilli in their quest for victory in East London.
