MUST READ: All changes to MTN8, Absa Premiership after guilty Ajax verdict

According to Soccer Laduma website, Ajax are on their way back to Cape Town. 

The Urban Warriors, who prior to the guilty verdict had finished 15th in the standings, were set to face Black Leopards and Jomo Cosmos in the promotion/relegation playoffs, but will now be replaced by Platinum Stars, who originally finished bottom of the standings, but moved up to 15th after Ajax's demise on Tuesday.

The Ikamva club has since challenged the verdict and will appear in court at 10:00 on Wednesday morning.

Stars were given a lifeline after the judgment was revealed on Tuesday, and now find themselves with a chance of staying in the Absa Premiership.

Dikwena are scheduled to play Leopards at the Thohoyandou Stadium on Wednesday at 15:00 in the first match of the relegation/promotion playoffs.
