The Citizens got off to a promising start as they saw  a lot of the ball in the opening stages of the encounter.

In the 12th minute, City went agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock, as Teko Modise slipped Craig Martin through on goal, however the winger saw his effort crash off the upright.

The Urban Warriors carved out their first chance on 20 minutes when Sergio Kammies' found Mdabuka, who headed over from close range.

Chances were hard to come by for both sides in the first half, as the heat looked to have taken it's toll on the players.

Two minutes before the break, Ajax were reduced to 10 men, when Gerald Takwara was sent off after he picked up two yellow cards in quick succession.

City's early pressure in the second half paid off, as poor marking from Ajax allowed Martin to run and head into the back of the net unchallenged in the 51st minute.

The Urban Warriors responded by introducing Fagrie Lakay for Morris, while City brought on Lyle Lakay for Roland Putche on the hour mark.

Thabo Nodada had a chance to double City's lead in the 67th minute, but the midfielder failed to direct his header on target from close range.

Tempers flared up on the sidelines with 10 minutes remaining and City coach Benni McCarthy was sent to the stands.

City nearly doubled their advantage in the 89th minut,e but Brandon Petersen produced a superb save to keep out Lakay's free-kick.

That proved to be the final chance of the half, as City held on for the win, which sees them complete the double over Ajax once again.
