Cape Town - Jomo Cosmos will look to get back to winning ways in the Absa Premiership when they host Ajax Cape Town at Olen Park.

Cosmos suffered a fourth defeat in their last five league matches when they were beaten 1-0 at University of Pretoria on January 9.

The Potchefstroom-based team has claimed eight points from six home matches this season.

Ezenkosi are placed 14th on the Absa Premiership log with 10 points from 13 matches.

Ajax saw their winless run in the league extended to eight games when they were held 1-1 away to Golden Arrows on January 13.

The Cape side has claimed one point from four away matches this season.

The Urban Warriors are placed 12th on the Absa Premiership log with 13 points from 12 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Cosmos and Ajax have met in 22 league matches since 1999/2000.
