Cape Town - Ahead of Ajax Cape Town's crucial clash against Polokwane City, coach Roger De Sa said it will be a tough encounter for his troops.

The Urban Warriors will host Rise and Shine in an Absa premiership encounter at the Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday evening.

The former Orlando Pirates mentor insisted that the Limpopo based side looks more organised than in the past two seasons and he will find it tough to motivate his youthful side.

De Sa, however, hinted that it will be a test of character for Ajax and they intend to give it their best shot.

“Polokwane City is a difficult team to play against, I think,” said De Sa.

“From what I have seen so far this season, they look more organised than in the past two seasons. Their new coach has done a very good job to restructure the team.

“So it’ll be tough for us for us to play them and for us these games are very crucial and we have to win at all cost.

“I think that it’ll be a test of character and it will be very tough to motivate our players. But we must do well and we’ll give it our best shot.”

Heading into this clash, the Urban Warriors are coming from a 2-1 defeat to Pirates last week while City played to a goalless stalemate against Bidvest Wits at home.

Kick-off is scheduled for 19:30.
