Ajax brace for Arrows battle
The Cape Town side face bottom of the log Golden Arrows at Cape Town Stadium tonight.
CAPE TOWN - Ajax Cape Town need to make the most of Golden Arrows's defensive frailties when the two sides clash at Cape Town Stadium tonight, coach Roger de Sa said on Wednesday.
The Urban Warriors will be looking to build on their league win over Moroka Swallows when they face coach Shaun Bartlett's struggling side.
A win is a necessity for the bottom-placed visitors who are looking to avoid automatic relegation from the Premier Soccer League (PSL).
De Sa says Arrows are dangerous when they are on the offensive.
"They're not very good defensively but going forward, they always give themselves a chance. When I coached against them for Pirates, even though we beat them every time, they somehow always had two or three good opportunities that could have turned the game."
The Arrows strike force has come in for special praise from the 49-year-old Ajax boss, who added Arrows players will come out fighting against his side.
"I think their strike force is pretty good. I think [Bonginkosi] Ntuli is probably a striker that about ten PSL teams are waiting to sign up when Arrows go down. He's definitely a good one and there are another two or three there that are quality players. Now they're fighting for their lives and playing for their contracts."
De Sa believes Arrows are in a desperate situation and will set out to play in a very direct manner tonight.
The match kicks off at 7:30pm.
