“If you look at the performance of Pirates and Cape Town City, even ourselves, you will see that Pirates deserved to be probably in a higher position than that. But Cape Town City were looking very good and were progressing very well as the season continued.
“Their second round of the season was unbelievable and we know for the fact that we are not going to be playing pushovers. We are playing a team that will be competing in the Champions League, a team that is coached by one of the best coaches in the country, Eric Tinkler.
“So we understand the depth and the expectations of this match, but we believe we can still put it.”
Mngqithi also highlighted the importance of getting a victory against the Citizens, who will be looking to topple Sundowns at the top after finishing up as runners-up.
“If we beat Cape Town City you know they can beat the next five teams in the league and if you have beaten them you gave yourself a chance,” he said.
“The same would apply to all the teams in the top five and we consider them all important because if we beat them we already put our foot forward.”
