Amakhosi entertain the Citizens in an Absa Premiership clash at the FNB Stadium on Saturday evening, with kick-off set for 20h15.
Second spot is up for grabs for both teams involved, while gaining ground on log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns will also be at the forefront of the players' minds.
Chiefs currently occupy fourth position, followed by City in fifth, with only goal difference seperating them at the moment.
With just 10 games left of the campaign, 'Shabba' has stressed the value of each point at stake, and insists they will not settle for less than three come tomorrow evening.
"It's going to be a tough game, but a good one. We expect an open game because Cape Town City are a team that want to play," said Tshabalala.
"We also want to play, and it's three points at stake. I don't think they'll come here for a point. It's like a last lap now, and every point counts.
"We're looking forward to the game and picking up the maximum points."
