The Urban Warriors welcome the Dube Birds to the Athlone Stadium with the Soweto outfit desperate for a result to move away from the relegation zone.

As it stands, with two games of the season remaining, Swallows are second last in the Premiership, two points from safety and only three above bottom club AmaZulu.

Swallows beat Maritzburg United 1-0 at the weekend and will want to keep up that momentum against their Cape opponents.

However, Ajax are fresh off an inspiring last-minute 3-2 win over Bloemfontein Celtic and will not be hounded by the threat of relegation on the night.

"It's going to be a tough one because they want to move out of relegation zone and we're also eyeing to finish in top eight, so basically both of us needs three points," Lebusa told KickOff.

"We always make sure that we get maximum points at home but to maintain that is difficult because everyone is aware of our form at home.

"They want to stop that. However, I think them knowing that we only lost one game of the season so far it's a psychological advantage for us."
