Prince Nxumalo struck twice against Polokwane on Friday night as they claimed all three points for a change.
Ajax hadn’t been bad at the start of the season, against Orlando Pirates last week they created as many chances as Pirates did but the difference was they failed to capitalise.
Coach Stanley Menzo was a frustrated man and rightly so after that defeat in Soweto.
But they turned it around on Friday and finally found the back of the net.
It also showed the importance of Prince.
He was withdrawn before kick-off against Golden Arrows the week before because of his illness and they really do need to help him manage it better because he is clearly vital to their top-eight finish bid.
