Ajax test for Chiefs before derby



Kaizer Chiefs will look to bounce back from their first defeat in the Absa Premiership this season when they host Ajax Cape Town at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday, kick-off at 7:30pm CAT (SA, GMT+2). Live on SS4, SSHD4 and supersport.com

Chiefs saw their unbeaten run in the league come to an end in their last outing, as they were defeated 2-0 away to Platinum Stars.

The Soweto side has an excellent home record so far this season, with five wins and a draw from six matches.

The Amakhosi are placed first on the Absa Premiership log with 27 points from 12 matches.

Ajax ended a four-game winless streak in their last outing, as they claimed a 3-2 win over local rivals Chippa United.

The Cape Town side has won just one of their six away matches so far this season, and has suffered four defeats.

The Urban Warriors are placed 12th on the Absa Premiership log with 12 points from as many matches.

In head-to-head stats, Chiefs and Ajax have met in 26 league matches since 1999/2000.

The Soweto side has claimed 10 wins compared to seven for the Cape side, while no less than nine matches have ended in draws.
