Depleted Cape Town City wary of Kaizer Chiefs, Nurkovic threat

Cape Town City coach Jan Olde Riekerink is taking nothing for granted as the Premier Soccer League side prepare to host strugglers Kaizer Chiefs, with Samir Nurkovic's impact a notable concern for him.

City failed to win any of their last two outings —a 3-2 loss to Swallows FC and a 2-2 draw against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila— while Chiefs recorded a morale-boosting 1-0 win over AmaZulu in midweek.

Prior to that, the Cape Town side had been unbeaten in five consecutive league matches and had been outside favourites for the PSL title.
