It has come to the attention of the Siya crew that on loan Ajax Cape Town striker, Eleazar Rodgers, is eligible to play against Mamelodi Sundowns, despite clubs usually agreeing that the players cannot play against the club they are on loan from.
At a recent Ajax press conference, coach Muhsin Ertugral said, “Usually there is just a verbal agreement between the two clubs, but I can assure you that Eleazar will play against Sundowns.”
Ajax have lost two successive Absa Premiership matches in the last two weeks, with only a draw to show for the 2013/14 PSL season so far.
The Urban Warriors will go in search of their first three points of the PSL campaign against Sundowns on Tuesday, who signed Khama Billiat from the Urban Warriors during the recent transfer window period, which subsequently saw the out of favour Rodgers move in the opposite direction, on loan.
The two sides have been rather evenly matched while playing in Cape Town in recent seasons. Ajax and Sundowns have won five matches each, while four of their matches have ended in draws.
