Ajax Cape Town will have to bounce back with a bang tonight and find a way to keep going in the PSL run-in (kickoff 7.30pm).
They face Jomo Cosmos at Cape Town Stadium knowing that they need to score goals.
Problem is, after their 5-0 pak at the hands of Bloem Celtic, Roger de Sa’s manne haven’t scored in three games now.
Looking back to their last seven games, the Urban Warriors have found the back of the opposition net just three times.
It’s been frustrating for boss De Sa to see his team hold giants Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs to goalless draws in that run and leak goals to the likes of Celtic.
They have been sloppy at the back, shipping goals from back passes.
Up front they have been just as disappointing, missing easy chances.
And against relegation candidates Jomo Cosmos things will be even tougher in front of goal.
Jomo Sono’s side have not conceded in three games.
Ajax, defending MTN8 title holders, are in danger of not being able to defend their crown, currently lying 10th in the league.
And coach De Sa is gatvol of his players pissing away good performances by putting in k@k shifts.
After the Celtic hiding, he questioned their professionalism, saying: “When you’re a |professional player, you don’t need too much motivation – you should be motivated each time to put on a kit and play.
“Obviously today, nobody came to the party, nobody even came out the changeroom and it was very disappointing from the performance we gave against Sundowns to the one we gave today – it was almost as if we had totally different people.”
