Ajax Cape Town and Cape Umoya registered very important victories this past weekend.

Ajax gave their promotion chances a real boost with a confident 2-0 victory over TS Sporting at Athlone Stadium.

The result has pushed the Urban Warriors up to second place, five points behind leaders Stellenbosch.

Mother nature saved Stellenbosch as their match had to be abandoned with Real Kings leading 2-1 at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium on Sunday afternoon. That match will be replayed.

Meanwhile, at Athlone Stadium that same Sunday, Cape Umoya got the win they needed to give themselves some breathing space from the bottom teams.

Dominic Isaacs’ charges beat Ubuntu Cape Town 2-1 and now sit in position 11 in the table, six points clear of the relegation zone.

This weekend, Ajax will host Richards Bay at Athlone Stadium on Friday afternoon, Stellenbosch will travel to Thohoyandou Stadium to visit Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila on Saturday afternoon and on Sunday, Cape Umoya United welcome Real Kings at Athlone Stadium.

And in other league action, Ubuntu Cape Town will host Pretoria University FC at Boland Stadium.
