After a quiet week in which they weren’t in action, Ajax Cape Town face two crunch league matches in the coming days.
With the Urban Warriors in danger of slipping into a relegation scrap at the bottom of the log, their home clash with 15th placed Highlands Park on Wednesday is an absolute must-win for Stanley Menzo’s side.
Ajax lost away to the Lions of the North when the teams first met back in December last year, so some much needed revenge is on the cards for the Cape Town side.
Following the home clash against Highlands, Menzo’s side will head out on the road for a match away to Golden Arrows on Saturday.
A trip to the Princess Magogo Stadium outside of Durban is never an easy one and Abafana Bes’thende are fighting hard to finish in the top half of the table and earn a place in next season’s Top Eight competition.
Yet Ajax will take confidence from having beaten the KwaZulu-Natal side 1-0 at home back in December last year, and will be eager to claim a ‘double’ to boost their league standings.
