Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town striker Nathan Paulse says the Urban Warriors’ win over Bidvest Wits was a sigh of relief for his team-mates.

Ajax eliminated Wits from the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals after walking away 2-1 victors at the Athlone stadium last Friday.
Bantu Mzwakali and Tashreeq Morris were on target for the Mother City-based side before Thulani Hlatshwayo scored a consolation goal for Wits in the dying minutes of the game.
Paulse, 33, believes Ajax managed to get past the Clever Boys due to their team work on the night.
“It was a tough game for us and we had our backs against the wall for a long time this season,” said Paulse.
“I believe God was just on our side because we managed to hold on to our lead as a team.
“By looking where we are now, we just have to give credit to the whole team.
“It’s a cup game and when you are through, you are through to the next round of the competition.
“You can’t say this and that happened because at the end of the day Ajax are going to the semi-finals and we can’t change that.
“I’m glad we managed to win against Wits.”
Ajax will now face the in-form SuperSport United in the semi-finals of the Ke Yona competition later this month.
