Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town head coach Roger de Sa is determined to get his side back to winnings ways when they welcome Platinum Stars to the Cape Town Stadium for a league clash on Wednesday night.

The Urban Warriors were handed their second defeat of the season by league leaders Kaizer Chiefs in front of a capacity crowd at the World Cup venue on Sunday.

The loss resulted in the Capetonians falling from second place to the fifth and de Sa has since admitted that maximum points in the midweek encounter will be crucial to their league ambitions.

"The good thing about the (Platinum) Stars game is that it means we've only got two days to be unhappy about the Chiefs result," the Ajax coach said.

"We have an immediate opportunity to turn it around and we've got to get it right as soon as possible."

The former goalkeeper added that he does not expect the same turnout when Dikwena arrive, after approximately 40 000 fans attended his side's match against Chiefs.

"I think it might be difficult (against Platinum Stars) because we won't get a crowd behind us like we had against Chiefs," he continued.

"But at the end of the day it is only three points. For us it’s important to keep the intensity going. (But) It's a tough job."
