Stuart Baxter says that Kaizer Chiefs’ clash with Ajax Cape Town is worth the same amount of points as the Soweto Derby, and should be treated as such.

The Amakhosi take on the Urban Warriors at FNB Stadium this week as they look to get back to winning ways in the league, following their CAF Champions League win over Township Rollers.

However, while some Chiefs players may have one eye on the weekend’s Soweto Derby with Orlando Pirates, Baxter says that, right now, the clash with Ajax is more important.

Baxter told Chiefs’ official website, “We are looking forward to each and every match we have to play. Ajax are a tough side. They have in their team good and enthusiastic players. We have to prepare well against them.

“It is three points at stake, the equal number of points we will be playing for in the Derby. We are coming from a CAF Champions League trip, different conditions. We will have to recoup the players quickly back to our usual conditions.

“The next game is the most important game for us. Our main focus is on the Ajax match this Wednesday.”
