AmaZulu v Ajax CT Preview

AmaZulu will be hoping to keep their unbeaten run in 2014 intact while also doing the double over Ajax Cape Town, when they lock horns in a Absa Premiership clash at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Tuesday.

When the two sides met earlier this season in Cape Town, Usuthu walked away with a a 2-1 victory courtesy of an own-goal from Cecil Lolo and a strike from Carlington Nyadombo, while Nathan Paulse scored a consolation goal for Ajax.

The Durban side are currently placed fifth on the Absa Premiership table with 24 points from 17 matches, while the Cape Town based side are are placed 10th on the Absa Premiership log with 19 points from their 15 matches played so far.

AmaZulu's former Ajax Cape Town midfielder Nhlanhla Shabalala is determined to get one over his former team, after making the move from the Cape to Durban during the January transfer window.

Ajax, on the other hand are likely to field former AmaZulu midfielder Thamsanqa Sangweni, whom they signed up on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns before the end of the transfer window.

Craig Rosslee’s men have come off the back of a 1-1 home draw against Orlando Pirates, before beating SuperSport United 1-0 away from home.

The Urban Warriors have played just once so far this year resulting in a 2-1 loss to Orlando Pirates and interim manager Ian Taylor will be hoping to pick up their first three pointer for 2014.
