Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger De Sa believes the key to victory against Orlando Pirates is speedy wing play and a direct style.

The Cape side started their 2016/17 campaign with a 1-1 draw away to Baroka and De Sa is now looking forward to locking horns with former club Orlando Pirates.

"We have four games at home coming up," De Sa was quoted as saying by IOL.co.za. "The aim is just to play the way we know how to play.

"As we did when winning the MTN8 last season, we used good passing, speedy wing play and a direct style. That's how we like to play, and that's how I expect the team to play tomorrow (Tuesday).

"It will obviously be easy to motivate the players against Pirates, so hopefully we will be able to get something from the match. It'll be a headache to pick the starting team, but that's a nice problem to have."

The Ajax coach has only two players out injured - Tashreeq Morris and Ali Abondo.

He could be tempted to give debuts to attacking midfielders Mark Mayambela and Lebogang Mokoena, two new signings who have the potential to inflict damage out wide.
