Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town head coach Roger De Sa admits his players have struggled since their Telkom Knockout defeat to Golden Arrows, and is hoping they can get "back on track" against SuperSport United on Saturday.

The Urban Warriors find themselves languishing in ninth place in the Premiership standings, level on points with Orlando Pirates and Free State Stars.

However, a win against Gordon Igesund's men could see them rise as high as seventh place, depending on results elsewhere.

A win is exactly what De Sa has on his mind, and he is hoping the fact that the match is taking place at Athlone Stadium will work in his side's favour.

"We need to get back to winning ways," De Sa told the club's official website.

"It's been tough for us since the cup final, for various reasons.

"We need to take our chances and make this one count to get ourselves back on track.

"The draw to Tuks hurt us more than the loss to Pirates, because we need to win games like that.

"I think Pirates were probably better than us on the day, but we also could've got something out of the game.

"I don't think many teams like coming to Athlone Stadium. I think they all prefer Cape Town Stadium, but our players don't mind Athlone at all."

Kick-off is at 20:15.
