Ajax desperate for a victory

2014-12-20 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Ajax Cape Town will be desperate to end a five-match winless streak as they head to Pretoria to take on Mamelodi Sundowns tonight.

After a strong start to the campaign, the wheels have come off for Ajax. In their past nine matches, the Urban Warriors have conceded 17 goals and scored nine, winning just one match, and have slipped from second to fourth place in the PSL. Coach Roger de Sa has spoken recently of his young and inexperienced squad, who are in vast contrast to Sundowns’ star-studded outfit.

The Brazilians are on a six-match unbeaten streak which has yielded 11 points and taken them to third on the table.

Ajax beat Sundowns 1-0 in their first-round encounter in Cape Town.
