We can't afford to be complacent - Igesund 10/03/04
Ajax Cape Town host the endeavouring Dynamos, for the second time in two weeks, at the Newlands Stadium on Wednesday evening for a Castle Premiership showdown.

Ajax are challenging city rivals Santos and Gauteng nemesis Kaizer Chiefs for the coveted Premier Soccer League (PSL) championship trophy.

The Peoples Team stumbled to a 1-0 loss to lowly Hellenic and the Urban Warriors can come within a point of the league leaders if they are triumphant tonight.

The Cape glamour club are third on the league chart with 18 games played having won 12 of those encounters, compared to Dynamos paltry two wins in 21 games.

It is unlikely that coach Steve Komphela's charges can pull off an away win against a youthful and formidable title chasing Ajax team.

Coach Gordon Igesund is looking for his fourth PSL title after having previously won it with Manning Rangers in the inaugural PSL season (1996/97), Orlando Pirates (2000/2001) and Santos (2001/2002).

The three-time winning coach is expecting a tough game from the Thohoyandou team.

"Last night we saw a major upset when Hellenic beat Santos 1-0 and we can't allow that kind on complacency to settle within the team," Igesund said.

"They (Dynamos) are a team fighting off relegation and we're a team challenging  for league honours. Both teams will fight for the three points as it is invaluable at this stage of the season."

Igesund also confirmed that Josep Ngake and Melekelayi Kanku are suspended while 15-year old wonder boy Mkhanyiseli Siwahla will be on the bench for tonight's game.

Siwahla became the youngest player ever in the Castle Premiership to score a goal when he made his debut against the visitors a fortnight ago and played a starring role in Ajax's 3-0 Absa Cup first round win.
