Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town have bounced back to form with a comprehensive 4-1 defeat of Platinum Stars in their Absa Premiership match at the Cape Town Stadium on Friday night.
A brace from former Dikwena striker Bradley Grobler, as well as goals from Keagon Dolly and Khama Billiat saw the side coast home.
Stars netted through a dubious penalty award in the first half, Patrick Malokase converting from the spot.
But the visitors always looked second best against an Ajax side who were brilliantly led in midfield by the Dutch star Koen van de Laak.
Poor Stars defending saw Dolly pick up a loose ball on the edge of the area and he applied a cool finish to open the scoring on eight minutes, celebrating his first-ever PSL strike with a serious of somersaults.
Dikwena equalized through the spot-kick from Malokase, but it was just a brief rest bite for them as Ajax took the lead again through Grobler.
Van de Laak played what looked like a harmless ball across the box, but after Obert Moyo failed to clear, it fell to the feet of Grobler and his shot deflected past Mpontshane.
The Urban Warriors should have extended their lead minutes later when the brilliant Van de Laak’s storming run down the right ended with a ball across the face of goal that fell to Paul Rusike at the back post, but with the open net gaping he somehow put his effort wide.
Fine trickery from Thuso Phala on the left saw him cut inside and unleash a powerful drive that only just cleared Roberts’ goal.
But it would be the home side who scored next, Dolly’s low cross from the left was not cleared and it meant Grobler had a simple tap-in from six-yards to complete his brace.
And the cherry on top came in the form of a fourth from Billiat as he sped onto a ball from Rusike and beat Mpontshane with a neat finish over the goalkeeper.
