MTN8 Final: 'Underdogs' Cape Town City are in a good position against Mamelodi Sundowns - Tinkler

Cape Town City head coach Eric Tinkler says they are happy to accept the underdog tag heading into Saturday's MTN8 final against Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Citizens will look to become the first team to defeat Masandawana this season with the Tshwane giants having looked unstoppable under their co-head coaches Rhulani Mokwena and Manqoba Mngqithi.

Masandawana are currently enjoying a seven-match winning run in domestic competitions and the last time they tasted a defeat was against Egyptian football powerhouse Al Ahly in the Caf Champions League in May this year.

However, Tinkler feels their recent 4-3 win against Lamontville Golden Arrows in a PSL clash over the weekend has given his charges a much-needed confidence booster ahead of their encounter with Sundowns.
