Cape Town - University of Pretoria will be hoping to end their winless streak when they welcome Ajax Cape Town to the Tuks Stadium for a Premiership encounter on Wednesday.

AmaTuks have yet to win at their campus venue in this campaign, with their sole victory registered away at Chippa United back in August.

Steve Barker's charges have since gone seven matches without a win, including a defeat in the opening round of the Telkom Knockout.

They will be missing the services of defender Vuyisile Ntombayithethi, who sits out his second match through suspension for a red card.

Barker organised a workshop this week in an effort to bring his side closer together and find ways to improve following their early season struggles.

The Pretoria side currently occupy 15th position, with only six points registered from nine outings going into this clash.

Ajax, meanwhile, are in a more inspiring position in second place, with 17 points on the board from their nine matches.

The Urban Warriors have had a week and a half to overcome their Telkom KO quarter-final setback at Orlando Pirates.

Leading scorer Thabiso Nkoana is unavailable, after he picked up his fourth yellow card in the cup clash at Orlando Pirates.

Head coach Roger de Sa will be concerned about duo Tashreeq Morris and captain Travis Graham, who are still sitting on three yellow cards.
