Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger De Sa is wholly satisfied with the manner in which his players have acquitted themselves this season, despite recording three disappointing defeats in their last five league matches.

The most recent of those defeats was the 3-0 loss against the University of Pretoria on November 5. However, De Sa said there was absolutely nothing to panic about just yet, adding that all the pre-season expectations at the club had been met thus far.

Ajax Cape Town are third in the Premiership standings, as they have accumulated 17 points in the first ten matches.

"We don’t really have any concerns. I think that if you break it down to every ten matches, we have got to be happy with what we have achieved this season. Seventeen points in ten matches for us is pretty good," De Sa told Football411.

De Sa said his primary objective ahead of this year’s campaign was to improve on what the club achieved during the last season.

The early indications are that this objective will be realised at the end of the season and De Sa has even mildly suggested that a top-three finish was on the cards this term.

"If we can get 17 points from the next ten and then 17 after that, we will be pretty satisfied with the work done," added De Sa.

"Obviously there are always changes in every game and there are always things that can go better and we could push a bit harder and so on but we are pretty content with what we have achieved so far.

"Our targets were always going to be trying to improve on the previous season. That is always what I try and do. I don’t look too far back or too far forward. Every game we play I look at the result of the previous year and what we achieved last year against the opposition and I try and improve it.

"We try to improve a little bit here and a little bit there and at the end of the season, hopefully that improvement is quite a substantial one. We are obviously disappointed with some of the results but we have still got to be happy with others. Some results go your way and other don’t," added De Sa.
