Relegation-threatened Stellenbosch will be desperate to turn around their fortunes in the Cape derby against Cape Town City on Friday evening.
Teams: Stellenbosch v Cape Town City
Date: 27 January 2023
Venue: Danie Craven Stadium
Stellies are smarting from a heavy 4-1 defeat to Orlando Pirates over the weekend, which saw them go nine games without a win.
Steve Barker's charges, as a result, have dropped down to 15th spot on the table with 17 points and need a win to boost their survival hopes.
