Urban Warriors eye bragging rights in Cape Town derby

Cape Town Spurs will target a return to winning ways in the GladAfrica Championship when they face Cape Town All Stars in a local derby at Idas Valley Sports Ground on Saturday afternoon (3.30pm kick-off).

Shaun Bartlett’s side returned to action after the mid-season break with a goalless draw away to TS Sporting last weekend and they were unfortunate to be beaten 2-1 by Free State Stars at Athlone Stadium on Tuesday.

It was only their third defeat under Bartlett and halted a six-game unbeaten run in the league, where the Urban Warriors find themselves 11th in the standings on 21 points, seven shy of the top-eight.

Bartlett claimed his first point at the helm when Spurs drew 1-1 with Igugu Lekapa in the reverse fixture on October 31, when the Ndiviwe Mdabuka scored an 89th-minute penalty to cancel out Ashley Cupido’s 47th-minute opener and deny the hosts all three points.

Cape Town All Stars come into this weekend’s clash on the back of a 1-1 draw at Black Leopards on Wednesday, which extended their undefeated streak in the league to seven matches.

The point saw Allan Freeze’s men move up to fifth place and they trail front-runners Richards Bay and JDR Stars by just four points.

Spurs recorded the league double over their local rivals last season, winning 1-0 in both the home and away ties.
