The 31-year-old Cale has featured prominently for his club throughout the current campaign and has even contributed with two goals of his own.

He understands just how much will be at stake for both teams on Wednesday and hopes that his past experiences will help his team negotiate one of their most difficult matches of the season thus far.

"It will be vital for players with experience to do well against Chiefs," Cale told his club's official website.

Throughout this campaign, the fact that Ajax have a youthful squad has been well documented.
