Ajax Cape Town will be under pressure to claim maximum points against Bidvest Wits this evening, in order to avoid the possibility of sharing the last position on the league standings.
Ajax are currently seated at 15th placed on the Absa Premiership league standings, just three points above Platinum Stars who are at the foot of the log.
The Urban Warriors will be in action against a confident Wits side this evening and despite the fact that three more points won’t take Ajax too far up the league standings, it will prevent them from having to share the 16th spot with Dikwena, should the Rustenburg outfit upset Kaizer Chiefs at the weekend and be joint on points with the Cape Town-based club.
A win for Head Coach Roger De Sa’s outfit against Amakhosi on Sunday will increase their chances of possibly surviving the drop at the end of the season, should Ajax be unable to claim all three points this evening.
“We are ready,” Ajax head coach, Muhsin Ertugral told the media ahead of their clash against Wits this evening.
“They worked very well, we brought Elsa in. The morale is there, I think they believe in themselves.
“(Bidvest) Wits we know how they play, what are their strengths and weaknesses of the team, obviously knowing that it is not going to be a pretty game because we need to get the result out and we will do everything to win the game,” he added.
The match takes place at the Athlone Stadium at 19:30 this evening.
