Ajax Cape Town coach, Roger De Sa, predicts that tonight's encounter against AmaZayoni will be a tough one as Aces are getting better and better.
De Sa was speaking to the Siya crew ahead of this clash at Athlone Stadium this evening. The former Orlando Pirates coach said that the Clive Barker’ mentored team has performed very well recently.
“We’ll face a tough side I must say, Aces have done very well and they’re here to play. We’re looking at overtaking them on the log standings though and that’s realistic. We hope to be at our best come tonight. I’m glad that some of our players are coming back from injury like Toriq (Losper), though he’s probably one week away from fitness. I can’t rush him, but he’ll be fine by next weekend. Other than that, we have Nathan Paulse and Franklin Cale who are also out.
“I’m more positive in our training sessions as we move on. We got to compare ourselves with the likes of Kaizer Chiefs, they’re the best in the league. They have a balanced squad despite the setback in the champions league. They controlled the game against us but we didn’t take our chances. I believe we’ll get more organised and structured as we go along,” added De Sa.
Aces are sat at position nine and Ajax at 11 on the Absa Premiership table. The match between the former Bafana Bafana coach, Barker and his keeper, De Sa’s clubs will get underway at 20:00.
