The second leg of the MTN8 semi-finals, the Ajax Cape Town squad is in good spirits and have been boosted with a few returns from injury as well as additions to the squad.
Kris Bright (Bidvest Wits) v Rivaldo Coetzee (Ajax)
Another New Zealander to take the PSL by storm this week, Bright hit the ground running when he debuted in the league, scoring a goal and setting up another. He looked lively and sharp, making some clever runs in an exciting Students’ attack. Bafana Bafana back Coetzee will have to be on his toes to shut out Bright.
Phumlani Ntshangase (Bidvest Wits) v Prince Nxumalo (Ajax)
With Thulani Hlatshwayo doubtful, Gavin Hunt may again turn to Ntshangase in a make-shift centre-half role. That should interest Nxumalo, who has been the form forward in the first month of PSL action after three goals in two games. The former SuperSport United man is in red hot form and is vital to the Ajax attack.
Elias Pelembe (Bidvest Wits) v Abbubaker Mobara (Ajax)
A seasoned PSL campaigner, Pelembe seems to be enjoying a new lease of life at the Bidvest Stadium following his off-season move from Mamelodi Sundowns. Along with Daine Klate, he has been integral to the attack of the Johannesburg side. Mobara too likes to get forward, but how he copes with the Mozambican down the wing might be crucial.
