The Cape side occupy seventh spot on the log with 34 points from their 24 games, while AmaTuks are further back in tenth position on 30 points from 25 outings.
A win for Tuks could close the gap to one point, and based on their narrow loss to Kaizer Chiefs who have one hand on the Premiership trophy in their previous fixture, the match could be a closely contested affair.
Roger de Sa’s Ajax have also recently added Ruzaigh Gamildien and Ndiviwe Mdabuka to their squad of players in a bid to boost their chances of finishing further up the league table at the business end of the competition.
“Ruzaigh is a typical Ajax player who will complement the team. We expect him to regain his form which elevated him into the Bafana squad a few seasons ago,” said Ajax CEO Ari Efstathiou on the club’s website.
Ajax come into the match off the back of their 2-1 Nedbank Cup quarterfinal victory over Wits last week, and would be looking to transfer that form to their league outings. – ANA
