Ajax Capetown reach Nedbank Cup Quarterfinals after beating Celtic 1-0

Bara Bafana_280x_100Ajax Cape Town edged Bloemfontein Celtic 1-0 at Athlone Stadium on Friday night to move into the Nedbank Cup quarterfinals.

In a tightly-contested match, Tashreeq Morris’ early strike proved to be the difference between the teams, with Phunya Sele Sele unlucky to twice hit the frame of the Urban Warriors’ goal.

Ajax opened the scoring as early as the ninth minute. A floated cross from the right flank by Bantu Mzwakali picked out Franklin Cale in the box, who in turn played a cushioned ball across the face of goal that was turned home at close range by Tashreeq Morris.

Celtic responded well to going behind and put together several threatening moves in the minutes after Ajax’s goal, before the game clicked into a higher gear that saw the teams trading attacks in some end-to-end action.
