Cape Town Spurs coach Shaun Bartlett believes that his side can get back on track against Cape Town City in the upcoming iKapa Derby at the DHL Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Following a stuttering start to the 2023/24 DStv Premiership, the Urban Warriors will now shift their attention to a key football fixture on the Cape Town football calendar.
As the first iKapa Derby of the campaign, Bartlett mentioned that his players will be playing for their families and communities, while aiming to secure bragging rights for the next couple of months.
“They will be playing for themselves, their families and obviously their communities, which is important,” Bartlett said.
“Besides the three points, it is about the bragging rights and playing for the pride of Cape Town.
“Come Sunday until December, whoever has the bragging rights will have the upper hand. We know they’ve had against the former Ajax Cape Town but that’s irrelevant.
“It’s a new season, it’s a new team and our players will be coming with the attitude of getting the points.
“This could be the game that turns our season around.”
