Absa Premiership: Cape Town City FC training session

A late blooming Cape Town City dug their way out of a 2-0 deficit to draw their match against Golden arrows by 2-2.

The match began with City shooting off the blocks but could not finish their early chances. Then the tide turned as Arrows found their confidence and quenched the space City was enjoying.

It was evident that City would fall back as Siphelele Magubane gave the KwaZulu Natal based side the lead after 39 minutes. Both teams went into the break with just the one goal between them.

The second half was similar to the first few moments of the game as City stepped up their game and were creating scoring opportunities. But that was just the problem the chances were only created but never taken.

Arrows showed them how the deed is done when they extended their lead by a goal from Jabulani Shongwe in the 69th minute.

Ayanda Patosi pulled a goal back for the Mother City from the penalty spot to make it 2-1. The game was settled by Thabo Nodada who equalised for City and gave head coach Benni McCarthy a breather as the sweat was falling from his forehead.

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.


Teko Modise and team mates were on the winning side again when they gave Golden Arrows a 2-0 beating.

Goals by Mzikayise Mashaba and Hlompho Kekana were enough to give the African champions three points and take them to the top of the Absa Premiership table.

Pitso Mosimane and his troops are sitting pretty at the top of the table with many feeling like they hold the advantage of lifting the honours.

Downs will face Platinum Stars on Thursday to lead the way to the finish line with just less than 6 matches left to lay for the season. They will play at home at the Lucas Moripe Stadium with the match scheduled to kick-off at 18:00.
