Ajax Cape Town drew Amazulu in the first round of the Nedbank Cup and the Urban Warriors coach Maarten Stekelenburg is looking forward to the challenge.
He said, “Playing Amazulu in the first round is not an entirely bad draw, because we know how they play their football unlike PSL teams who have drawn minnows and have no information about their opponents.
We want to go one stage better than we did in the MTN8 competition where we reached the semi-final, we aiming for a final spot.
Playing against Amazulu is a challenging prospect and we are looking forward to playing them, especially after our last encounter when they beat us, now its payback time. The players are still smarting from the loss and they want to succeed in this competition.
There is a spot in next season’s CAF Confederations Cup up for grabs and we would like to showcase our football at a higher level.”
