Ajax CT eyeing PSL's top spot

2011-02-25 07:47

Johannesburg - Ajax Cape Town have the chance to shoot to the top of the table when they entertain Free State Stars at the Athlone Stadium on Friday night.

With the two teams above the Urban Warriors only in action on Saturday afternoon in the Soweto derby, Ajax can go top for at least a few hours.

The home side are currently unbeaten in six and have lost just once in their last ten league matches.

Thulani Serero has been the star of the show for Ajax this season and the forward will be hoping to add to his seven league goals.

Free State Stars currently occupy the final place in the top eight and have the chance to move into the top six with an away victory.

However, Ea Lla Koto have become draw specialists after seeing ten of the 21 matches this season end in a stalemate.

Stars beat Ajax earlier in the campaign thanks to a brace from Noah Chivuta and head coach Steve Komphela will be hoping for more of the same.

In team news, Ajax defender Nazeer Allie returned to full training this week following a lengthy spell out with a knee problem, but this match may come too soon for him.

Brett Evans is also back and could be selected after making a successful comeback for the reserve side.

Stars have no serious concerns to deal with going into the match as they look to pick up just their second win on the road all season.
