Polokwane City striker, Puleng Tlolane, tells Soccer Laduma that they can't afford to lose at home against Ajax Cape Town in their home league encounter on Tuesday evening.
Rise and Shine are fresh from a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Maritzburg United last Wednesday at the Harry Gwala Stadium, with Tlolane the goalscorer in that tie.
On the other hand, the Urban Warriors are upbeat ahead of this encounter having beaten the current league champions, Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 last Wednesday in Cape Town.
Speaking to the crew, the Zebediela-born player said he’s eyeing their first win against the Mother City outfit.
“I’m looking forward to the game and it’s our first home match. We need to win at all costs and we’ve been doing well so far. We’re fresh from a loss against Maritzburg and that pushes us to win tonight. We just can’t afford to lose the three points against Ajax in front of our home crowd,” said Tlolane.
City will be without midfielders, Sipho Jembula and Mothusi Gopane who are out nursing hamstring and quadriceps injuries respectively.
The game gets underway at 19:30 at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.
