Following their shock exit from the Nedbank Cup at the hands of Kwadukuza United this weekend, Ajax Cape Town will be preparing for a clash with Free State Stars set for Friday.
Stanley Menzo’s men were dumped out of the cup competition on penalties but must look to bounce straight back when they host Ea Lla Koto in an Absa Premiership clash.
The match is scheduled for Friday 17 March at the Athlone Stadium, with kick-off at 20h00 CAT.
The Urban Warriors have yet to win a match in 2017 and will be targeting this clash against relegation-threatened Stars as a chance to end that drought.
Ajax have played Stars once already in the league this season, drawing 1-1 in the Free State back in early November of last year.
The Cape side led 1-0 thanks to a goal from Bantu Mzwakali midway through the firts half, but Stars hit back through Goodman Dlamini soon after the break to ensure the game finished all square.
