Cape Town - Bidvest Wits midfielder Phumlani Ntshangase says it would be 'suicidal' for his side to expect an easy game against Ajax Cape Town in the first-leg of their MTN8 semi-final encounter on Saturday.
Wits will battle it out against the Urban Warriors in yet another clash between the sides, who locked horns in the opening game of the Absa Premiership season on Saturday, where the Students emerged 2-1 victors.
Ntshangase, though, is expecting a very different encounter in the Wafa Wafa this weekend.
Last term's PSL Young Player of The Season told Football411: "We are on a high following our good starts in both MTN 8 and League matches. But it would be suicidal for us to underestimate Ajax, and expect an easy win against them just because we beat them last weekend.
"We expect a very tough clash against them on Saturday, because they won't expect to suffer another defeat to us.
"This will also be a different ball-game compared to the Saturday's League game we played against them, as this is a knock-out clash, never mind that there is a first leg and second leg. Surely, sparks will fly.
"Our recent positive results so far come as a motivational factor. All we need to do is to keep the momentum and guard against possible complacency."
The Clever Boys advanced to the semi-finals of the lucrative MTN8 via a 3-1 victory over SuperSport United last Tuesday, while Urban Warriors stunned Orlando Pirates 1-0 the following day.
In the other MTN8 semi-final first-leg encounter, Bloemfontein Celtic host Kaizer Chiefs at Free State Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
