JOHANNESBURG - Bevan Fransman says SuperSport United will be looking to make the most of their Telkom Knockout campaign.

The league leaders face Ajax Cape Town in the last 32 at Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Fransman expects a tough game from a young Ajax side.

"They've been very gutsy especially some of the youngsters. It's a bit of a danger when you come up against them because youngsters play with no fear. They have some quality youngsters who came through the youth development this year."

The game will be SuperSports' first competitive fixture since 21 September.

Fransman admits the long break between games is baffling.

"It's a bit tricky because you want to have some momentum. I don't know any other league in the world that has breaks like we do. Hopefully the season can get underway now."

The game starts at 3pm.
