Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town head coach Roger De Sa is aware of the hype around Sunday's top of the table Premiership clash against Kazier Chiefs, but insists to him it is "just another game".

The MultiChoice Diski Challenge clash between the two sides has also been added to the bill, to set up a double header between the clubs' reserve and top flight teams at the Cape Town Stadium.

Former Buccaneers coach De Sa said that he avoids getting caught up in the significance of such matches, where his second-placed charges face the current pace-setters.

"Like I said, it is just another game. I don't get carried away with these," the Urban Warriors told his club's official website.

"We have to prepare and we know it is first versus second. It is important we stay in touch with them on the standings because they are running away with it at the moment.

"They will have a good lead if results go their way. So we will be representing everyone in the league and hopefully we will prove that Chiefs are not this runaway train everyone is talking about. Maybe the train will stop in Cape Town this weekend," added Ajax's witty mentor.

Chiefs are the only unbeaten side in the league with seven wins out of seven Premiership matches so far, while Ajax are closest to them with one loss, two draws and four wins from their seven outings.
