Two struggling teams with a great reputation in the country will lock horns this evening t move off the relegation zone. That is Ajax Cape Town and Free State Stars who are both struggling to bounce back to winning ways and stay part of the top 8 before the end of the season. The two teams will face each other at Athlone Stadium on Friday evening. Kick-off is at 8:00pm CAT.
The Urban Warriors have yet to win a game in the New Year with Stanley Menzo’s men playing to a third successive draw last time out; held to a goalless stalemate by SuperSport United in Tshwane. Ea Lla Koto have had a change in coach since the last time the two teams cross swords, with the clash in Bethlehem earlier this season Menzo’s first in charge of the Cape club.
speaking to media Menzo said, “They are very direct, have good individual players and they play at a high pace – a lot of runs from midfield. It won’t be an easy game, but yes like I’ve said before, the teams around us – here is where we have to get our points”. This will be a great and exciting encounter as both teams are desperate for success but more importantly they are fighting for survival in the top flight league in South Africa.
