Ajax Cape Town defender and captain, Dominic Isaacs, is disappointed to be missing out on Saturday’s league fixture against Free State Stars at Goble Park Stadium.
The 31-year-old player received a red card in the Nedbank Cup game against Mamelodi Sundowns, and missed last week’s encounter against Polokwane City, which the Urban Warriors won 2-0. He is due to serve the last game of his suspension and it is a setback for the Cape side. Nathan Paulse is also confirmed to be out for the rest of the season through injury and Eleazar Rodgers is also likely to miss the tie.
Isaacs told the Siya crew, “Each and every season, I set myself goals. I want to play in all the games. I’ve reached the 20-games mark so far this season and I’m happy about that. I also don’t miss training sessions and I’m thankful to the coach and the rest of the technical team for looking really well after me. I was suspended for the Orlando Pirates game and then got a red card against Sundowns, which I think was a little harsh. But it’s all in the game of football, so I have to accept it and move on.”
On the visit to Bethlehem to face Ea Lla Koto, the former Kaizer Chiefs defender says, “I’ve spoken to my guys and they are aware of the task at hand. Free State Stars are a wounded lion and wounded lions are very, very dangerous. I believe if we play to our strength, we can come away with a point there, but then if we get all three, that would be fantastic for us.”
