De Sa aware of poor away form

Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger De Sa has admitted he is constantly working with his players to improve their form away from home.

The Urban Warriors secured a respectable fifth-place finish in the Premiership last term, securing a place in this season's MTN8 competition.

De Sa's men lock horns with Carling Black Label Cup winners Orlando Pirates in Soweto on Tuesday evening, and they will be hoping to exact some revenge following a disappointing 4-0 defeat to Pirates in the Premiership last season.

To do that, though, Ajax will have to produce a strong performance away from home - they recorded just three away wins in the league in the 2014-15 Premiership campaign.

"It is no secret that we have not done well enough on the road and this is something we must change," De Sa said.

"It's a problem we are acutely aware of and one we constantly seek to work on."
