Cape Town City beats Bloemfontein Celtic at Athlone

This was the first game in the last three weeks for the Cape Town City, who was on the bottom of the Absa Premiership with not so good Soccer10 results. We didn’t enjoy their performance for some time. Finally, they come back.

But now they won in the game against Bloemfontein Celtic. Two amazing goals were enough for the victory in this game. This victory gives them a better place in the Absa Premiership. Right now they are in the 10th position.

Cape Town City vs Bloemfontein Celtic highlights

Abbubaker Mobara was on the bench for the first time since September. Chirs David starts the game in the midfield alongside with Mduduzi Mdantsane and Shane Roberts.

The Citizens didn’t play well in the last matches, but now they played on nice football. David pulled all strings from the middle. Finally, in the 27th minute, the home side was awarded a goal. Thabo Nodada finds the net with a shoot from the distance. This was his fourth goal in this season.


Even if Celtic had a bad start in the game, at the end of the first half they start to play. They even have one great chance to score. But luckily for the Cape Town City, Craig Martin was in the right place.

After that chance, we can see another Cape Town City goal. Just before the end of the first half, the doubled their advantage. Amethyst Bradley Ralani collect the ball and send her past Jackson Mabokgwane

In the second half, we can see almost the same situation. Cape Town City played better football, even if Jan Olde Riekerink needs to make a change in the team. He needs to replace Mdantsane by Mpho Makola.

In the last minutes of the second half, Bloemfontein Celtic didn’t manage to score the goal. This victory brings the Cape Town City back in the top ten of the Absa Premiership.

As a result, the City is now in the tenth position. If they continue to play like this they have a good chance to move on a better position. In this season they can’t expect a lot of things, but they can give their best to get the better position they can.
