MBABANE – South Africa’s Cape Town City are not taking their first CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round tie against Young Buffaloes lightly.

They are bringing a strong 23-man squad for the clash. This was confirmed by Cape Town City boss John Comitis on Monday to South African publication, The Star.

The team is expected to arrive in the country tomorrow for their first leg tie at Somhlolo National Stadium after playing Wits in the Nedbank Cup clash tonight. The CAF Confederation Cup game is billed for Saturday at 4pm.

“We will take the usual 18 players for the squad to play against Wits and five more players will join the squad on Thursday for the CAF encounter. We want to take a bigger squad so that we can assess our injury situation after the Wits clash as well as allowing a few others an opportunity for game time in Swaziland,” said Commitis as quoted by The Star.

It was reported that the ‘Citizens’ are expected to bring in two youngsters in Zukile Kewuti and Shane Roberts.
“We want a full go at CAF Competition. We will use the opportunity to rotate, though we are a little disappointed that we have not been able to register new signing Allan Kateragga and Matthew Rusike. We will have to wait for the next round before we can add them to our CAF squad,” The Star reported.

The usual 18-man squad includes former Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates star, Teko Modise, experienced central midfielder Thabo Nodada, former Bafana Bafana left winger Ayanda Patosi, right winger Sibusiso Masina, to mention a few.
