CAPE TOWN - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sa believes Orlando Pirates are showing no signs of fatigue right now.

He comes up against his former team in the MTN 8 at Orlando Stadium on Tuesday night.

Pirates are coming off the back of a Carling Cup win as well as having played two matches in the African Confederations Cup.

This will be Ajax's first competitive match to get the season underway.

De Sa says the Bucs are on top of their game at the moment. "I am sure Eric [Tinkler] is doing a great job in managing [the players] obviously he knows when to rest them and when not to."

He has kept them pretty fresh along the way and they look pretty sharp. I saw them against [Kaizer] Chiefs they looked very good and I watched them in Africa and I think they are as good as I have ever seen them."

The other match sees Wits host Supersport United.

Both matches kick off at 7:30pm.
