Cape Town City winger Surprise Ralani says they are looking to make a solid start to their Absa Premiership campaign, as they aim to mount a tangible challenge for the title.
The Citizens host three-time champions SuperSport United at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday (18h00), a big game for the side in front of their home fans.
With Ajax Cape Town relegated to the National First Division, City have the job of representing the Mother City and supporters can be comfortable knowing that they are a side capable of achieving success.
Following his impressive performances in the second half of last season, Ralani is determined to make a solid start.
“SuperSport is a good club and everyone knows that. It will be a good morale booster to win that game before we play the MTN8 [against Maritzburg United]. We will focus on the league game first, before the cup game. It will be an exciting game, because it’s a great club we are playing against,” says the 30-year-old winger, who played his football in Sweden, before finally making his PSL debut in January.
City played Bidvest Wits, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates during pre-season and they are now ready for the start of the new campaign.
