Football - 2013 Telkom Knockout - Supersport United v Ajax Cape Town - Lucas Moripe StadiumSuperSport United welcome Ajax Cape Town in their last 16 Telkom Knockout encounter on Saturday night in Tshwane.

The match is scheduled for Lucas Moripe Stadium at 8:15pm.

Matsatsantsa are going into this match highly motivated following their Absa premiership victory against Highlands Park at home last Sunday.

Matsatsantsa are still going into this match without some of their key members who are nursing an assortment of injuries.

Despite injuries, Stuart Baxter’s charges will rely on players such as Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Morgan Gould, Kingston Nkhatha, Thuso Phala and Jeremy Brockie who netted a brace at the same venue last weekend.

“We have prepared very well for the Cup match.  Our previous win at home played a positive role ahead of the match. But this is going to be a tough one because Ajax are a hard side to beat I can tell you that.

However, we will rely heavily on the home ground advantage.  Also, our fans will be there to give the team a moral support,” said the Matsatsantsa marksman Jeremy Brockie.

Meanwhile Matsatsantsa won this tournament five seasons ago under the guidance of the newly appointed Highlands Park coach Gordon Igesund.
