In their Premier Soccer League (PSL) debut season, Cape Town City have been punching above their weight as they find themselves in pole position in the title race.

The Citizens’ success has been primarily down to the form of key players, such as Aubrey Ngoma and Lebogang Manyama. However, it must be noted that the attacking pair were surplus to requirements at their more illustrious former teams, a trait that is common amongst many of City’s star names.

One player in particular is Lehlohonolo Majoro, who has had stints at both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates. However, the forward maintains that the City players have nothing to prove.

"Most of the players here have been with big teams and it's just unfortunate that we never got enough chance to express ourselves,” Majoro told The Sowetan.

“I'm referring to the likes of Aubrey Ngoma, Lebo (Lebogang) Manyama, Tshepo Gumede and Robyn Johannes. Now they are given the freedom.

"The mistake that people make is thinking that we are here to prove a point, but that's not the case," Majoro added.

The 30-year-old also believes that City’s recent success is due to their togetherness.

"If you are there [in the dressing room] before the game you can see that this is a united team and that makes us tick," Majoro concluded.
