McCarthy pins hope on Rusike return

Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy hopes the return of striker Matthew Rusike from injury will ease their goal scoring problems when they host SuperSport United on Saturday.

Rusike last featured against Bidvest Wits in the league in February and has missed the last eight matches in all competitions. Also returning from injury is Teko Modise.

“The big positive for me is that I’m getting Teko Modise back, I’m getting Matthew Rusike back. So for me, that is the key element,” McCarthy told

“So I’m looking forward next week come SuperSport that I’m going to have those two players. More so Matthew Rusike, who is hungry. He came here and he was the answer for our goals and then he got injured at the wrong time. So now he suffered a little setback but now he’ll come back.

“Hopefully he can solve the problem that we have. We are creating the chances but we don’t have a hungry striker who wants to score more than 10-15 goals in the season.”

City is currently in the sixth position with 35 points from 26 games.
