Ajax Cape Town recorded their first ever win at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday evening when they beat Polokwane City 2-1. However, there was another first on display, as newly promoted Olwethu Nguye made his debut for the Cape side.
The Urban Warriors took the lead after just one minute through Thabiso Nkoana, who joined Ajax on loan from SuperSport United.
Tashreeq Morris doubled the visitors’ lead, while Abbubaker Mobara reduced the deficit when he converted into his own net late on in the match.
Debutant, Olwethu Nguye came from the bench in place off sought after attacking midfielder, Keagan Dolly, with 18 minutes to go.
Ajax CEO, Ari Efstathiou, believes that Nguye didn’t get enough game-time to make an impact on the match.
“He did okay. He didn’t get enough time to really get involved in the game,” said Efstathiou.
Nguye played an instrumental part in the Ajax U19 team who ended as runner ups in the 2014 Copa Amsterdam.
Ajax are second on the Absa Premiership standings after three matches with seven points, with Kaizer Chiefs topping the log with nine points.
