Runnaway log leaders Kaizer Chiefs are keen to return to winning ways in the Absa Premiership when they welcome Ajax Cape Town to the FNB stadium on Wednesday. The fixture between Amakhosi and the Urban Warriors is always mouthwatering. Chiefs will enter the tussle as table toppers and will be looking to extend their lead as they face a strong Ajax coming from a good win in their last league fixture.
Looking at the log, the Naturena club has lost only once after twenty matches in the league. Stuart Baxter’s boys have amassed 47 points, ten points ahead of defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns. Baxter commented: ‘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.’
Roger De Sa’s side occupies fourth on the log with twenty eight points to show in twenty games. The Glamour Boys beat the Cape Town club away from home early in this season; the 1-0 score came courtesy of Tefu Mashamaite’s second half header.
