Ajax Cape Town's Travis Graham targets SuperSport United scalp
Posted: 3 March 2017 Time: 13:57
Ajax Cape Town captain Travis Graham has stressed the importance of getting a result against log leaders SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday night.
Ajax are still seeking their first win in 2017, as they lost 5-0 to Bidvest Wits and 2-0 to Cape Town City before recording 1-1 draws with Polokwane City and Kaizer Chiefs.
The Urban Warriors are six points above the drop zone with 11 matches left, and naturally Graham is eager to secure their topflight survival.
“It is going to be a tough game, but especially for us, we have to take things one game at a time, playing the top teams consecutively,” Graham told his club's website.
“For us, we just have to sit down and focus on this game and make sure we get another positive result because we need to climb the log standings as well and make sure we are safe from relegation. That is what we are playing for, to try and get as much points as we can.”
He added: “I think if we are able to get a result against SuperSport it will serve as a massive confidence booster heading into the next game. Free State Stars are also battling for points and no one wants to be in the relegation zone. To get the points now is really important so that we don’t have to worry about that later on.”
Graham is back from suspension after missing the stalemate with Amakhosi, but Ghanaian defender Lawrence Lartey will serve a one-match ban on the weekend.
