Nodada: It was easier for City last season

Cape Town City midfielder Thabo Nodada feels that as a ‘surprise package’, last season was an easier one for the Citizens.

In their first season since coming into existence after the purchase of Mpumalanga Black Aces’ franchise, the new team from the Mother City exceeded expectations by finishing third in the league and also winning the Telkom Knockout.

They now stand on the brink of another trophy success ahead of this Saturday’s MTN8 final showdown with SuperSport United in Durban.

But Nodada admits it’s been tougher this time around as other clubs now know what to expect from City, although he thinks they have handled the challenge well.
