Cape Town - Travis Graham and Bantu Mzwakali are available again for Ajax Cape Town ahead of their Premiership clash against AmaZulu on Tuesday.

MUST READ: Ajax search for comeback

The pair missed the 4-0 hammering by Orlando Pirates after picking up injuries earlier on their Gauteng trip last week - during the 4-2 loss to Bidvest Wits.

Keagan Dolly and Dominic Isaacs remain long-term casualties, with the latter particularly being presently missed by coach Roger de Sa after they shipped eight goals in their last two outings.

"We don't have massive depth at the back and we have t strengthen there in January," he said.

"We have to shuffle every time we have problems and that's a big concern for me."

AmaZulu, meanwhile, face a major goalkeeper conundrum ahead of the clash after Siyabonga Mngoma fractured his arm in the 1-1 derby draw against Maritzburg United last Friday.

Regular number one Tapuwa Kapini was dropped for the game due to fatigue, with Aubrey Mathibe now set to step in.

Zambia striker Bornwell Mwape is suspended after he was red-carded in Pietermaritzburg.

"Ajax are a good footballing team," Usuthu coach Steve Barker said.

"They are really difficult to play in Cape Town, but we have to go there with confidence and belief that we can get a result."

The Urban Warriors are presently fourth on the table, while AmaZulu are rock bottom. However, the Durbanites have not lost to Ajax in the Mother City on each of their past four trips there, winning three of those games.
