Phakaaathi Reporter

City reached the semis of the Telkom knockout Cup for the first time in the club’s history.

Cape Town City coach Eric Tinkler wants his side to pick up where they left off mid-week as they prepare to take on Free State Stars in the semifinal of the Telkom knockout Cup.

City have reached the semifinals of the cup competition for the first time in the club’s history as they look to book a spot in the final by defeating Ea Lla Koto.

Tinkler’s side have won six game in a row across all competition and are in second place on the Absa Premier League table.

“I’ve always believed that you have to make winning a habit, you have to become addicted to winning,” Coach Tinkler said. “And that is why I also always tell the players that they cannot be complacent because a loss is just around the corner, that’s the harsh reality of the sport.

“The distance between complacency and consistency is marginal, which is why they have to always keep working hard.”
