Another busy weekend of PSL fixtures looms, and a Chippa United vs Cape Town City fixture kicks things off on Friday night.

The two sides battle it out at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium equally desperate for three points – albeit for different reasons.

The Chilli Boys could – at the very least – find themselves contending in the promotion/relegation playoffs, given their current log position of 15th place, and wI’ll be looking for a way out of the red zone via three points against the Citizens.

They are up against a side still with a mathematical shot at the league title with four matches still to play.

City are in fifth place, 12 points behind the log-leading Orlando Pirates and still with two matches in hand. However, coach Benni McCarthy is all the way convinced that much can come of their league campaign.

“The way the league is‚ I won’t hold my breath to say that something positive for us will come of it,” he said after the one-all draw against Highlands Park on Tuesday.

“With what we are going through‚ we will probably have to play‚ but we will see what the outcome will be.”

The two sides had to settle for a stalemate last time out as they played to a 1-1 draw in December 2018.
