Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger De Sa wants his side to kick on from their victory over Golden Arrows and is now targeting two wins from two tough away games in the space of five days.

The Urban Warriors beat Arrows 1-0 in Cape Town on Friday but face a daunting trip to Gauteng to take on Orlando Pirates at the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night and then play SuperSport in Atteridgeville on Sunday.

SuperSport have recently changed their coach, with Stuart Baxter taking over from Gordon Igesund, and Pirates are in all sorts of trouble in the league, 13th on log, and De Sa says maybe it is a good time to play both teams.

"I don't think both of those teams have done that well recently, they are both going through a tough patch. SuperSport have changed their coach and everyone is aware of where Pirates are and what they are doing," he said.

"Maybe therefore it is a good time to play them. We got a morale boosting win over Golden Arrows on Friday and hopefully we can kick on from there.

"For me it's always difficult to predict if we are going to win or lose but I want them to play well; I want them to keep on doing the right things and hopefully with that will come the results."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
