CAPE TOWN - Ajax Cape Town boss Ari Efstathiou praised him team's commitment in their hard fought win over Polokwane City last night.

The Urban Warriors won 2-1 to record their first ever win at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

They are now second on the league table with seven points as Kaizer Chiefs top the standings.

Efstathiou says it was a gutsy performance from a young team.

"We scored a goal in a second minute and we just fought from there on until the 90th minute where we conceded an own goal. But the commitment of the team was unbelievable and all the credit must go to the coach and the players."

Efstathiou says it's important for the team to keep focus.

"We must be realistic as we've got a very young squad and our depth is not as it should be. So we must not get carried away, the results have been fantastic but I'm sure we'll have few hiccups there and there.

Efstathiou says the Urban Warriors have done extremely well and they plan to continue. He says they are still looking to sign to more players before the transfer window ends.

"Ideally we'd like to add two more members to the team but at this point it's very tight. But that will give us more options going forward."
