KickOff.com has learnt that Ajax Cape Town winger Thabo Mosadi will make his first start since January when they face AmaZulu at King Zwelethini Stadium tonight.
The 27-year-old former University of Pretoria winger fell out of favour after Stanley Menzo left the club in the first half of the season and has struggled to win a place in current coach Muhsin Ertugral’s starting line-up.
He made 13 appearances in the first half of the season, but has played just once in 2018. The speedy winger last featured in a 2-1 defeat to Maritzburg United at Cape Town Stadium on January 5.
Earlier this year, Ertugral said Mosadi still has role to play in his team but needed to work on his conditioning. Word from the Ajax camp is that Mosadi has since impressed the former Kaizer Chiefs coach and has now forced his way into the line-up.
Ajax’s on-loan striker Fagrie Lakay, meanwhile, says he will do everything in his power to help the Urban Warriors retain their top flight status.
Lakay has played a key role since joining Ajax on a six months loan deal from SuperSport United, scoring two goals and assisting once.
According to Lakay, who is expected to start against Usuthu as well, Ajax are far too good a team to be relegated.
“It’s important that we as players do everything in our power to start collecting as many points as possible and start with AmaZulu. Away games are very difficult, but we have no choice but to go all out. It’s important that we believe in ourselves.
“We must think of the Cape Town community and play for them as Ajax plays an important role in the city,” Lakay concluded.
