Swallows V Ajax Preview

Absa Premiership

Teams: Moroka Swallows v Ajax Cape Town

Date: 4 April 2014

Venue: Dobsonville Stadium

Ajax Cape Town will be looking to jump above Moroka Swallows on the Absa Premiership log when they travel to Dobsonville Stadium for a league match on Friday night.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h00.

Ajax currently occupy 12th place on the league table with 28 points from 24 games, but a win on Friday night could see them jump above Swallows who are in tenth place on the table with 30 points.

Swallows, though, will not be easy to beat as they have won two of their last three league matches, with their last outing a 1-0 away win over Platinum Stars in midweek.

The Soweto side has claimed 18 points from their 12 home matches so far this season.

Ajax will be desperate for a win as they have gone four league matches without a win and suffered a second successive defeat when they lost 2-0 at home to Black Aces last Friday night.

The Cape Town side has claimed seven points from their 11 away matches so far this season.

In head-to-head stats, Swallows and Ajax have met in 29 league matches since 1999/2000.

The Birds have 13 wins compared to 11 for the Urban Warriors, while just five matches have been drawn.

Swallows have won nine of their 14 home matches against Ajax, suffering three defeats in the process.

When the teams met earlier this season in Cape Town, the Birds claimed a 3-1 away win thanks to goals from Edward Manqele, Siyabonga Nomvethe and Lerato Chabangu.
