Ajax Cape Town will be looking for a repeat of their recent 2-1 win over Dynamos in the Castle Premiership when they take on the Giyani-based side in a Coca-Cola Cup first round tie at Newland Stadium on Wednesday.
However the Urban Warriors will have to be at the top of their game as Dynamos are due a few result after a disappointing start to the season that has sees them languishing second-from-bottom on the PSL standings.
The Urban Warriors will also be mindful of the 5-0 pasting they took at the hands of Dynamos last season and will need to carry their recent good form into the game if they are to progress to the next round of Africa's richest club cup competition.
Ajax will also be eager to improve on last season's showing in the Coke Cup when they controversially lost to Kaizer Chiefs in the semifinals.
"We want to be the best, and to be the best we have to beat the best," Ajax PRO Thabiso 'Shooz' Mekuto told SASoccer365 on Tuesday.
"At the moment Chiefs are the best, and you know how they supposedly beat us in last years semi-final, we want to play them again and show them who's the best team in South Africa and the Coca Cola Cup will provide us with this opportunity."
"We beat Dynamos recently and we're looking to do so again, without disrespecting Dynamos we know we'll win so we can advance to the next stage of the Coke Cup.
"It is important for us because we missed out last year and it won't happen again."
However Dynamos PRO Pastor Mafumo is confident his team can turn things around and get a result in Cape Town as the players will be extremely motivated because of the financial rewards the competition offers.
"Ajax are a good team and they have beaten us all ready, so the players are motivated to get a win," says Mafumo.
"The Coke Cup is associated with glory and this is what we want for our supporters, even though we're playing away from home"
"We've got a full squad and our players are hungry for success as they have been promised a share of the prize money.
"Also we don't have a sponsor so every game is very important for us, the players know this and are hungrily committed to winning the Coca Cola Cup."
Both teams have the motivation to go all the way and tomorrow night the Newlands' crowd should be buzzing with the anticipation of another meeting with Chiefs along the Coca-Cola Cup road to success.
