Ajax Cape Town coach Gordon Igesund is confident his Urban Warriors side will come away with a positive result against Dynamos when the two sides meet in a Castle Premiership fixture at the H.M. Pitje Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
'The Coach', as Igesund is more popularly known, revealed his young squad are looking forward to this weekend's match.
"We are heading up there in a positive frame of mind and I am confident we will come away with a positive result," Igesund told the club's official website.
"The boys eager to play and want to make up for the disappointing loss to Cosmos last week, where we controlled the entire match, only to lose it at the end."
Igesund admitted that the Urban Warriors are looking for more consistency as they head into the crucial Christmas period.
Ajax are currently sixth in the Premiership and should they win the two games they have in hand on league leaders Orlando Pirates, it will push them up to second spot on 20 points, on the same amount of points as Sundowns and just five points behind the Buccaneers.
"Our next two games are crucial. We have to secure full points from our games in hand so that we can stay in touch with the leaders," said Igesund.
"If we can be in the top four or five by the Christmas period heading into the break, then we will be in with a shout (for the Premiership title)."
Ajax will be without the services of Cyrille Mubiala, Dikulu Bageta and Dominic Isaacs for the clash, but Igesund revealed his excitement at the prospect of Norman Mapeza making his Premiership debut for the Urban Warriors this weekend.
"Norman Mapeza could make his debut against Dynamos. He is an exciting player and will fill the void left by Alfred Phiri," said Igesund.
"He is a key player who can control the pace of a match and will bring with him the necessary experience this young side has been lacking."
