'Teamwork is key for Ajax surge'

Ajax Cape Town have been working on fine tuning their performances as they seek to bounce back from a disappointing 2-0 loss to Cape Town City in their last Absa Premiership encounter and look forward to moving away from the relegation zone, said coach Stanley Menzo.

“I hope the players are disappointed, but that said, we have to go on and work on ourselves.

“I don’t think we have to change a lot, but we have to work harder on the things we work on. We have to create more chances, we have to defend better – that is what we will focus on this week,” he told the club’s website on Friday.

“We have to create more chances and get into the box, and into more dangerous positions. We have to be more clinical in the final third, better passes, better runs and the chances we get we have to score.

“Defensively is not all so bad, but defence is teamwork. As a team we have to defend better. We need to create confidence at either side of the pitch.”

Ajax resume their campaign away at bogey team Free State Stars at Goble Park in Bethlehem on Wednesday 18 October. Ajax sit with five points from their first six games of the new league season while Stars have seven points.
