The Urban Warriors will be looking for nothing less than maximum points as they go into their last game before the Christmas holidays against Golden Arrows at Newlands Stadium on Saturday evening. (Kick-off is at 7.30pm).
Gordon Igesund's team have had an excellent campaign so far, having topped the table a number of times, and a win tomorrow will see them move up to second or third place, depending on the outcome of the Chiefs-Santos clash.
Arrows, on the other hand, have not enjoyed the best of seasons so far, although their win over Black Leopards will certainly have boosted their flagging confidence.
Despite their lowly position, the Durban-based team have a very capable squad, and can pose a threat to any team when they are on song.
In U-23 international Mabhuti Khanyeza and Zambian Harry Milanzi they have two dangerous strikers, while former Cape Town player Jainudeen Lackay has shown that he can also come off the bench and score vital goals, as he did in Arrows' Coca-Cola cup campaign.
Indeed, the quality of players on Abafana bes'thende's bench, such as Siza Dlamini, Vumile Dladla and Tsepo Ntsoane, certainly indicates the strength of the Durban team.
Midfielders Thiyekikle 'Ace' Gulwa and Tekano 'Shoes' Ledimo are also proven playmakers in the midfield and the likes of captain Alfred Phiri will need to keep an eye on these two.
Although Igesund will make his charges aware of the threats posed by Arrows, the Ajax mentor always prefers to focus on his own team's strengths, which involve playing open and attacking football.
And with Mulekayi Kanku and Wilfred Mugeyi both having returned from recent suspensions, the Ajax faithful can certainly expect to see some entertaining soccer dished up by the heros on Saturday.
