Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs will have back-to-back home fixtures next week, the first home games since the Absa Premiership resumed.

The Glamour Boys welcome Ajax Cape Town on Wednesday evening, 4 March (kick-off at 19:30) while the Soweto derby against arch-rivals Orlando Pirates will follow on Saturday, 7 March (kick-off at 15:30).

Both matches will be played at the FNB Stadium.

“It’s crunch time,” Chiefs Corporate Communications Manager Vina Maphosa stresses on the clubs website.

“We are going for a home run with ten games to go. These two home fixtures will have an impact in our title aspirations.”

Despite going to Botswana’s Township Rollers with a narrow 2-1 lead into the second leg of the CAF Champions League this weekend, Chiefs had a bit of a slow restart in the Absa Premiership.

“The results of the last two league matches are water under the bridge,” insists Maphosa.

“We take each match as it comes.”

Chiefs will also go in the Nedbank Cup last-16 draw after demolishing SAB League campaigners Edu Sports this past weekend.

“The match against Ajax is a teaser ahead of the Derby.

“It is imperative to have a house full of supporters for both games.”

Ajax are far from pushovers and have become a handful ever since Roger de Sa took over the coaching reigns.
