CAPE TOWN - The fixture between Ajax Cape Town and Kaizer Chiefs is one that always promises goals, but Tuesday night's encounter saw something a little different.

Just one goal was scored by Ajax Cape Town which saw them take three points over the defending league champions.

Ajax substitute Tasriq Morris' late strike in the 87th minute sealed the win for the Urban Warriors.

Sending his team's fans into a frenzy, but the sighs of disbelief and dismay could be heard around the stadium from Chiefs fans.

Amakhosi had their fair chances to score, but nothing came of it despite enjoying most of the possession in the game.

After the match, Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter said they aren't happy going back home empty handed.

"It's always an entertaining game. The crowd would obviously be disappointed that we didn't take anything with us from the game. The crowd obviously enjoyed it, but our supporters would be disappointed. We'll have to go back to Jo'burg and lick our wounds and sharpen our swords and be ready for the next battle."

Chiefs are now sixth on the log.

Meanwhile, Ajax could have scored more than just one goal and this is something their coach Mushin Ertugral highlighted after the game.

"There was not one goal chance from Kaizer Chiefs if I am not mistaken and we had three clear chances. We had a good counter attack. There was the ball against the bar, one on one against the goalkeeper and obviously that one where Keegan Dolly should have scored."

Ajax are now on a three match unbeaten run and picked up seven points in those matches.

The win means they are out of the relegation zone and are 10th on the table.
