Two on Ajax injury list
Ajax Cape Town will be without midfielder Koen van de Laak and defender Aiden Jenniker until the end of the month.
Van de Laak, who had knee surgery last year, has now suffered a meniscus injury and is not expected to be available for selection until the beginning of April, coach Jan Versleijen said.
Jenniker suffered a medial ligament injury in training and is out for up to four weeks he added.
It is a disappointing blow for the defender, who had only just returned from a broken that had kept him out for a similar period.
Van de Laak, the former Dutch under-21 international, made a strong impact when he first arrived at Ajax from the Dutch club FC Groningen but has proven a passenger over the last months.
A knee problem necessitated surgery towards the end of last year but Versleijen said the latest injury has nothing to do with his old injury.
“It happens to players that their meniscus plays up. It is not anything that happened but it builds up overtime,” he explained.
Second from bottom Ajax Cape Town play away at Pretoria University on Wednesday but then have a 20-day break before their next match.
