Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Stanley Menzo believes his side are not concerned about a record involving just one win in 18 away matches against Free State Stars.

The Urban Warriors face Ea Lla Koto in a Premiership encounter at Goble Park on Wednesday, despite a proven losing streak in Bethlehem.

Nonetheless, Menzo takes the view that history means little and his team are determined to get a result.

"For me that does not count‚ it is only a challenge," the Dutchman told Sowetan Live.

"Let's get those three points‚ let's show that the history doesn't mean it will be the same in the next game.

"There will always be a time you will win there, it might be now. I don't believe that just because we have struggled there before means we will always struggle.

"If it is in the players' minds that 'we never win here' then we don't have to go there. It's not good. So let's change that historic thing and go and try to win.

"It's an important week for us‚ Free State and Bloem‚ and then the cup (Telkom Knockout). So it would be good for us‚ for the team‚ for the players‚ to get those three points.

"It won't be easy‚ we know‚ but we have to go for it. We will have to work hard for it‚ be committed. It's not impossible."

Kick off is at 19:30.
