Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy admitted that he is still trying to iron out the kinks in his team after they progressed in the MTN8.

The Citizens overcame Polokwane City at the Cape Town Stadium by a 1-0 scoreline, the difference a Sibusiso Mbonani own goal in the first-half.

"We're a work in progress," Bafana Bafana's record goalscorer told SuperSportTV after the game. "The signs are there that the boys can play but I think now it's back to the drawing board again.

"We got a first win and Polokwane didn't just come here to add numbers, they came to play and they're a very dangerous team.

"I'm very proud and privileged to be part of this team. These boys have gone out there and played for me and I can't really ask for more."

McCarthy's side take on Bidvest Wits in their first Absa Premiership match of 2017/18 and the new coach is aware that he needs to make a few alterations.

"I'm really happy but I've got to go and tweak a little bit more and hopefully for Friday against Wits we'll plug the holes," he said.
