Cape Town - Roger De Sa believes that Chippa United play a similar style to the way Polokwane City does, which will make his Ajax Cape Town side very prepared when the two sides meet at Cape Town Stadium on Friday evening.

Ajax drew 1-1 with Polokwane City on February 11, at Cape Town Stadium, however the Urban Warriors controlled proceedings throughout the match.

Rise and Shine’s tendency to strictly play through the middle of the park was cleverly countered by with some quick break-away play from counter-attacks.

De Sa believes that Chippa United also tend to play through the middle predominantly, which is something his side is well prepared for.

“Chippa play a similar style to Polokwane,” said De Sa on the Ajax’s official website.

“They also like coming through the middle.

“They are dangerous in attack, but we can deal with it on the day.

“They have some good quality players upfront and in the middle, but with what we've got, we are able to do well.”
