Absa Premiership 
 
Result: Ajax Cape Town 1-0 Baroka 
 
Date: 24 April 2018
 
Venue: Athlone Stadium
 
Ajax Cape Town took a huge step towards their Absa Premiership survival as they defeated Baroka FC 1-0 at the Athlone Stadium, with Mosa Lebusa netting a last-gasp winner.
 
 
The Urban Warriors looked lively in the early stages and they went close to taking the lead in the 11th minute when Yannick Zakri's towering header was tipped away by Ayanda Dlamini.
 
Ajax enjoyed the lion's share of the possession but they found it tough to carve open the visitors, who were happy to sit back and soak up the pressure.
 
The hosts had to wait until the 40th minute for another chance as Siyanda Zwane's cross found Zakri, but he failed to direct his header on target.
 
That proved to be the final chance of the first half as the sides went into the break scoreless.
 
Muhsin Ertugral opted for a change at the start of the second half, with Tercious Malepe making way for Tariq Losper.
 
The second half continued in same fashion as the first, with both sides struggling to carve out clear-cut chances in the opening 15 minutes.
 
Ajax went close to breaking the deadlock in the 65th minute through Samuel Julies, whose close-range strike was superbly turned away by Dlamini.
 
Baroka, on the other hand, posed no attacking threat in the second half and looked content with claiming a point on the road.
 
Defender Sergio Kammies was introduced for Ajax after 78 minutes and he should have broken the deadlock four minutes later when he failed to hit the target with the net gaping.
 
The Urban Warriors eventually snatched the victory three minutes into stoppage time thanks to a looping header from Mosa Lebusa to lift Ajax out of the relegation zone at SuperSport United's expense.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:

Ajax: 22. February, 43. Zwane, 13. Nhlapo, 30. Booysen, 5. Lebusa, 6. Nel (Kammies 78', 29. Malepe (Losper 46'), 8. Margeman, 16. Kabwe, 11. Morris, 44. Zakri. 

Subs: 1. Petersen, 3. Pietersen, 23. Mosadi, 38. Takwara, 25. Kammies, 10. Losper, 42. Julies.
 
Baroka: 33. Dlamini, 38. Mabotja, 15. Mothupa, 23. Kgaswane, 7. Chawaphiwa, 9. Nguzana, 24. Banda, 2. Kgoetyane, 28. Makgaka, 8. Mdantsane, 4. Madubanya.
 
Subs: 16. Vries, 26. Rethabile, 3. Mahashe, 18. Mapheto, 21. Moeti, 17. Ngalande, 14. Mosele.
