Ajax Cape Town defender Mosa Lebusa is wary of the threat posed by Cape Town City, as the Urban Warriors gear to face their crosstown rivals in an eagerly anticipated Absa Premiership clash this Saturday evening.
The Cape Town Derby has dominated the headlines in the Mother City over the past week, with Ajax eager to exact revenge for the 1-0 defeat suffered to the Citizens earlier this season.
“It is a big one, a Cape Derby and obviously we want to win – they want to win – we are playing for pride so I think it will be a tough game,” Lebusa said at the Cape Town Stadium on Friday morning.
City have enjoyed a terrific start to their debut season in South Africa’s top-flight with the likes of Aubrey Ngoma and Lebogang Manyama causing their opponents all sorts of problems throughout the campaign.
Lebusa has identified the threat posed by the duo, with the 24-year-old more than confident that the Urban Warriors will be able to extinguish the threat.
“Their attack is very, very dangerous – I think it is one of the best in the PSL,” Lebusa added. “We just have stay focused, remain firm and defend well against them because we saw that they are very good on the counter, so we have to counter control their swift attacks on goal.
He continued: “We want to win, we urge our supporters to come out in their numbers – to have our 12th man; it makes a difference to have them there supporting us and hopefully we can make them happy.
Moreover, Lebusa spoke about his pride in passing 100 games for Ajax Cape Town with the Welkom-born defender having made his professional debut for the club five years ago.
“It is a very nice feeling to have passed 100 games for this club, for the club I made my professional debut with. I am really happy, it is really exciting and I feel honoured,” Lebusa concluded.
