Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town will contest the Absa Premiership relegation/promotion playoffs as they finished in 15th position in the standings after suffering a 2-1 defeat to Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

The Urban Warriors needed a win to confirm their status in the top-flight but fell to the Amakhosi in a nail-biting encounter at Cape Town Stadium.

Goals by Bernard Parker and man of the match Joseph Molangoane for Kaizer Chiefs secured the three points for the away side with captain Mosa Lebusa scoring for Ajax.
