Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town and Maritzburg United will both target their first wins in the new Absa Premiership season when they meet at Cape Town Stadium.

Ajax began their 2015/16 league campaign with a 2-1 loss away to Bidvest Wits on August 8.

The Urban Warriors are placed 13th on the Absa Premiership log with zero points from one match.

Maritzburg began their 2015/16 league campaign by being held to a goalless draw by Jomo Cosmos at home on August 10.

The Team of Choice is placed 10th on the Absa Premiership log with one point from one match.

In head-to-head stats, Ajax and Maritzburg have met in 18 league matches since 2005/06.

Each side has claimed six wins over the other, while six matches have been drawn. The Urban Warriors have a very slight edge on goals scored: 21 to 20.

Ajax boast an unbeaten record in home league matches against United, with four wins and five draws from nine encounters in Cape Town.

Last season the Team of Choice took four points off the Urban Warriors, drawing 0-0 in the Mother City before winning 1-0 in the return game in KwaZulu-Natal.

The teams have played to four draws in their last nine league matches, having recorded just two stalemates in their first nine.

Kick-off is at 20:15 on Saturday, August 22.
