Cape Town City were victorious against Cape Town Spurs beating them 2-0 at the DHL Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The match was the last fixture of the year for both teams, who hoped to end the year on a high note in the Cape Derby.

City's win helped in keeping them in second position in the DStv Premiership, just six points behind league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns who still have three games in hand.

CTC took charge of the game very early on and created a number of chances, particularly a shot from Darwin Gonzalez that went over the bar and was not converted just before the 30 minute mark.

Eventually City found their stride and scored their first goal courtesy of Katlego Mokhuoane who registered his first goal for the club. Mokhuoane took a sublime free kick in the 35th minute and successfully got the ball into the back of the net. Giving City the comfortable cushion that they needed.

Spurs found themselves behind at the halftime mark, but did have their fair share of chances that they unfortunately were not able to build on. The second half went underway as City continued their pursuit of the victory with Jaedin Rhodes coming close to doubling the lead at the 52nd minute mark.

With half an hour left to go, City continued to dominate possession during the crunching match.

Cape Town City managed to keep a close protection of their lead and Spurs did not manage to score. Jaedin Rhodes would eventually get his goal just before the start of stoppage time in the 89th minute, leaving City with a comfortable win against their neighbours in the Cape derby.

The loss for Spurs leaves the team rooted at the bottom of the league standings, registering their 14th loss of the season in the DStv Premiership.
