Morgan Gould won't underestimate Cape Town City in Telkom Knockout final

SuperSport United defender Morgan Gould is mindful of the risk of underestimating Telkom Knockout final opponents Cape Town City.
The City Boyz have been in fine form of late, notching up a nine-match unbeaten streak that has seen them walts into their first ever cup final, while also sitting pretty with a three point lead atop the Absa Premiership table.
Gould is wary of the threat posed by the PSL rookies and dismisses suggestions that SuperSport come into this weekend's tussle as 'favourites', having lifted the league cup two seasons ago.
"They [City] are a big threat. They have done a tremendous job to get to the final," said Gould during his club's media day on Wednesday.
"No team is unbeatable. We can't go into this match thinking we cannot be beaten.
"Underdogs don't make it to the final. They have done a lot over the past five months, and they deserve to be in the Telkom Knockout final."
The 33-year-old has been handed a new lease on life since returning to Matsatsantsa from Kaizer Chiefs at the beginning of the season.
The former Bafana Bafana centre-back says, despite having previously worked with coach Stuart Baxter at Naturena, he has had to fight in order to prove himself worthy of playing once again.
"I came here and told myself that I am a new player," he said. "I needed to work hard to prove that I still want to play."
The final will take place at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday evening, with kick-off scheduled for 18h00.
