Following a thrilling 1-1 draw with Kaizer Chiefs, Ajax Cape Town will return to competitive action later this week when they face SuperSport United away from home.
The Urban Warriors performed strongly against a title-contending Amakhosi side and they will come up against another team with log-topping ambitions when they face United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.
Stuart Baxter’s side have gone unbeaten in the league since the opening round of the 2016/17 season and this past weekend claimed a 1-0 away win over Highlands Park which pushed them to the top of the log.
Baxter is no stranger to success in South Africa’s top flight, having twice taken Chiefs to title glory in his three years with the Soweto giants.
Ajax will be looking to build on the strengths they showed in their draw with the Soweto side and claim revenge on SuperSport, who defeated the Urban Warriors 2-0 in Cape Town when they teams met in the league earlier this season.
Ajax’s fixtures this week:
Saturday 4 March 2017
Absa Premiership, Round 20
SuperSport United v Ajax Cape Town
Lucas Moripe Stadium, 20h15 CAT
