Bloemfontein Celtic beat Cape Town City 1-0 in an Absa Premiership clash at Athlone Stadium on Tuesday evening, to build on their promising start to the campaign.

As expected, City head coach Benni McCarthy made wholesale changes to his starting 11 three days after their penalty shoot-out defeat to SuperSport United in the MTN8 final.

Taariq Fielies, Thabo Nodada and Teko Modise – who only played 66 minutes in Durban – the only three survivors from the clash.

Siwelele got off to the better start and registered the first shot in anger on 15 minutes. Ndumiso Mabena denied by Sage Stephens who has been preferred to Shu-Aib Walters between the sticks in league matches.

City’s first clear-cut chance fell to Ayanda Patosi just short of the half-hour mark, but he too failed to find the back of the net. Patrick Tignyemb with the save.

Stephens was called into action once more in the 33rd minute – making a double save to keep out Mabena and Deon Hotto, but for the large part it was a low-key affair.

Goalless at the break, with everything to play for in the second stanza.

Following a rather cagey spell following the interval, it would be the visitors to open the scoring in the 67th minute.

An eye-catching move finished with aplomb by Mahlasela, who showed a superb bit of skill to take it past the covering City defender before guiding the ball into the back of the net.

Lehlohonolo Majoro and Lyle Lakay were duly introduced off the bench by the Citizens as they went in search of equaliser, but it would not be forthcoming as they suffered their third defeat of the campaign.

As for Phunya Sele Sele, victory moves them level on points with their counterparts with a game against Ajax Cape Town at the same venue looming.

Teko Modise was on the losing end on Saturday at the Moses Mabhida Stadium as Cape Town City went down 4-2 on penalties against Supersport United.

The General as he is affectionately known has not lost hope though on a better performance in future. He also feels that the team can finish at the top end of the Absa Premiership come the end of the season, that which will allow them to have another shot at the domestic cup.

“Anything is possible. It’s football and there’s still next season again,” said Modise, who is hoping City can finish higher than the third place they achieved in the Absa Premiership last season.

”For us to do that we need to finish higher this season, so we need to focus now and be better.”

“The game was actually open and I feel we should’ve won,” he added.

“Supersport were just catching us on the counter attack. They put more numbers forward. We were actually the ones who had opportunities to hurt them but we didn’t utilise the chances.

“As i said earlier on, it is game of football; if you don’t score you are not going to win the game.”

After three games in the Absa Premier League Chiefs have finally registered a win in an emphatic fixture against Cape Town City on Thursday evening.

It was a thrilling encounter that saw City lose by two goals to none as they tried pressing Chiefs from the start to the end. In the first half it was more of a midfield battle as both teams could not have sufficient shots at goal.

City looked the more comfortable on the ball but suffered a loss in the replacement of Teko Modise who succumbed to a groin injury after 17 minutes. Bhongolwethu Jayiya came close to scoring in the 34th minute but his shot hit the post.

Chiefs broke the deadlock two minutes into the second half, as Tshabalala showed great composure to fire into the bottom corner from 12 yards out. City looked to hit back in the 57th minute through a close range shot by Masina but Khune made a great save.

Lehlohonolo Majoro almost got the better of a rejuvenated looking Khune in the 67th minute but the shot stopper made a double save to deny him.

Chiefs then put the nail to the coffin when they broke in the 81st minute and Gorge Maluleka gave a through ball to the 17 years old Meyiwa to calmly place the ball in the bottom left of the net.

Chiefs move to 9th position on the log with four points from three games played.


Teko Modise will be cruising the streets of Cape Town in a luxurious Lexus IS 250 as he received it from the Stellenbosch Lexus Barloworld.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns player was driven by Soweto VW but with his move away from Johannesburg to Cape Town. He will be happy to be driven by the Lexus model.

A new challenge and beginning for the “General” and Cape Town City FC supporters will be waiting to see the player luxuriously displaying his skills on and off the pitch in style.

Teko Modise has been revealed as a Cape Town City player by the club after being released by Mamelodi Sundowns as a free agent.

Modise had a successful spell with the Brazilians as he won more trophies at Downs than with any other team.

He will be joining the likes of Lyle Lakay, Ayanda Patosi and Jeitoso. They will also be led by Benni McCarthy as the new head coach.

“CTCFC is delighted to announce the signing of Teko Modise! The midfielder adds further quality and depth to the squad as we prepare to compete both domestically and in the CAFCC. Teko is determined to bring further success to the club, and become part of the story of the boys in Blue&Gold.

CTCFC family, join us in welcoming Teko to his new home in the City of Cape Town!

#iamCityFC,” City confirmed.

Teko Modise is delighted that the Absa Premiership season has come to an end as the games were coming thick and fast for Mamelodi Sundowns in all competitions.

“Finally the season is over and it was a good run. It may not have finished the way that we wanted it to end but nonetheless we finished second. This will at least slow down the pace of the games that we have to play. Now we can focus on the CAF Champions League games and have time prepare properly,” said Modise.

Asked if the team was not disappointed with not being able to lift the PSL title, Modise chose to be content with what the team has already achieved in this past season.

“Yes it would have been great to lift the title but you cannot win everything. The past season was a historical one for the team and us as players individually. So if we just linger on the disappointment of not lifting the PSL title we would not be doing ourselves justice. We had a great season.”

Downs will next face ES Tunis in their CAF competition fixture on June 02.

Teko Modise says that the two remaining games of the season will decide who lifts the Absa Premiership trophy come May 27.

Mamelodi Sundowns are second on the log trailing Bidvest Wits by two points. Wits slipped up and got beaten by Free State Stars in their last fixture but Downs could not make use of the advantage as they drew against Baroka FC.

“It is tough and there is no claiming that you will win any of the remaining fixtures. Teams are looking to escape relegation and some are gunning for the trophy,”Modise said.

Downs though have fixtures against Maritzburg United who want to keep their top 8 position and Highlands Park who want to escape the chop.

“It will not be easy but we have to stay focused and take it a game at a time. We start with the United match and aim for three points. Then we can focus on the last hurdle and hope that luck is on our side. Let us see what happens,” Modise concluded.


Mamelodi Sundowns finally got a win after a string of draws and defeats. The Brazilians grafted a 1-0 win against Free State Stars at the James Motlatsi Stadium.

A goal by Motjeka Madisha  before closing of the first half made sure that Downs return home with three points, taking them to fourth position on the log with 41 points from 21 games in total. They are now on the same number of games as Bidvest Wits who are third because of goal difference.

One would say that Downs have lost the advantage of having games in hand as they now only have 3 games in hand in contrast to Kaizer Chiefs as the team with the most games played (24).

Pitsi Mosimane and crew will face Supersport United in their next fixture on 19 April at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.


Mamelodi Sundowns have hit a deep in form as they exited the Nedbank Cup in the last 16 stage of the competition.

A 1-0 loss to KwaZulu-Natal side Golden Arrows sees the African Champions bow out of the competition. This follows their 0-0 draw against Bloemfontein Celtic and a loss against Kaizer Chiefs.

The dip of form though is no concern to Teko Modise and teammates as he states that it is just the way football is.

“Look we are sad after having to exit the Nedbank Cup but this does not mean we are all of a sudden a team that plays bad football. It is natural to lose once in a while, we cannot win every game we play.

Yes it is great to win but that is just like life. Sometimes things go your way and sometimes they do not. We have to soldier on and the good days will return in time. We take the loss and we move on,” concluded Modise.


Teko ‘The General’ Modise has praised fellow Mamelodi Sundowns team-mates for representing their country in the national team.

“The game was a great one. The team went out there and got a win. Praise must be given to the lads but most importantly I am proud of my teammates who are part of the team. I think that they are displaying the same effort as they do in the team,”said Modise.

Percy Tau made his debut for the national team and scored a goal. Modise says he is excited for the young man.

“Look he has done well. He is growing training by training and game by game. Now we see him in national colors and he scores a goal, amazing. Well done to him and all the young guys in the squad. Forca Bafana! (Up with Bafana).
