Ajax V Pirates In Numbers

ABSA Premiership Round 8 & 9 – Ajax Cape Town vs Orlando Pirates
 
Date: 4 November 2015
 
Time: 19h30
 
Venue: Cape Town Stadium 
 
Ajax Cape Town host Orlando Pirates this evening in an Absa Premiership encounter at the Cape Town Stadium. The Urban Warriors had two of their league matches postponed after sadly losing one of their key players in a tragic car accident. Roger De Sa will look to inspire his side to an inspiring performance against a Bucs outfit that come off an emphatic 3-1 win over Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto Derby last weekend. Last season’s corresponding fixture saw the two teams play to a thrilling 2-2 draw.
