Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sa admits he has the utmost respect for Kaizer Chiefs, but insists his charges will show no fear against them in the MTN8 final.

The Urban Warriors will lock horns against the defending champions at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on September 19, having already seen off one Soweto giant in Orlando Pirates on their way to this month's showpiece clash.

It will also be a second consecutive final for Ajax and De Sa, who will be looking to make amends after their loss to Mamelodi Sundowns in the Nedbank Cup last season.

"It will be a difficult one for sure. Kaizer Chiefs are league champions, a team with immense pedigree. They are a team that doesn't lose many finals, but we are looking forward to it," the coach told the club's website.

"Our youngsters are getting another experience. So early in their careers, getting two cup finals in such a short space of time.

"Hopefully we've learnt from the last one, so that we can put on a better showing and hopefully also turn the result around from the last one.

"It's been tough to get to another final. Firstly, to finish in the top eight was quite tough and then to play Orlando Pirates (MTN8 quarter-final) away from home and win, then to play Wits twice (semi-final) and turn the result around away from home was also very difficult."
