Wolff geared up for Ajax clash

News

Ajax, although with a game in hand, are still in search of their first win of the season, having drawn and lost their first two encounters.

The Premiership returns after a week long absence for international fixtures and Wits, having won two in three League matches so far, are looking for yet another win.

“We are anticipating a tough match, Matthew [Booth, a fellow former Ajax defender] and I are fortunate enough to know what Ajax are capable of, but the confidence is high in the team. I’ve just returned from suspension and I want to play, we all want to play and everybody is looking well, fresh and sharp.”

Wolff says he does not feel like he has a point to prove against the Urban Warriors.

“Ajax are my former club and I have no personal vendettas or anything against them, I’m approaching this game with the same attitude I did in the last game I played, so I’m just going to try my best to enjoy the game and help Bidvest Wits win all three points on the day.”

The 25-year-old has also welcomed the signing of Onismor Bhasera, who he will battle it out with for a berth in Gavin Hunt’s starting line-up.

“This means more competition for me, it will provide healthy competition and good cover just in case one of us is suspended or injured.

“He is a good player, but everywhere that I’ve been, I’ve had to fight for a place in the team and this is nothing new.”

Wolff also went in to lament the international break, saying: “You know when you start gaining momentum and you get a two-week break, that is very distracting.

“But for Wits it hasn’t been about consistency because of the three matches we’ve played, we won two and drew once away.

“We had a minor dip in the MTN8 but apart from that we are on the right track.

“We didn’t have a recess during this international break so hopefully that will come to show in the game.”

Kick-off is at 8pm at the Bidvest Stadium.
