Following an unceremoniously end to their last fixture, Cape Town City are back in action on Tuesday night as they host Highlands Park at Cape Town Stadium.

The Citizen had to rush to safety 23 minutes into their last outing against Bloemfontein at Dr Molemela Stadium after disgruntled fans stormed the pitch in protest against the state of affairs in the home side’s administration.

The match was abandoned with Phunya Sele Sele set to face the wrath of the PSL, and the resulting sanction could see points awarded to Benni McCarthy’s men, who are still within a shot of the PSL title.

The men from the Mother City are sixth on the log, ten points behind the table-topping Orlando Pirates with five matches still to play.

They are up against a side two spots below at eight place, who will be looking to retain their spot at the top half of the table on their first season back to the top flight.

The Lions of the North will also be looking to avenge a convincing defeat suffered at the hands of their opponents the last time they visited the same venue.

In the round of 16 in the Nedbank Cup, the Citizens ran off 3-0 victors in what was their own act of revenge, having been defeated when the two sides met in an earlier league encounter.

Overall, these teams have only met three times in league action and have one win apiece.
