Menzo - It's cup final time


Ajax take on Maritzburg United tonight at Harry Gwala Stadium (20h15).

“We know what we want to do and we know what we have to do. We’ve prepared ourselves very well and I think we know what we can expect from Maritzburg United. They also need the points, so we’ve prepared well for them,” Menzo tells

Ajax in their last two games against Free State Stars and KwaDukuza United scored four goals but conceded as many, with Menzo aiming to improve on this front.

“Scoring goals is the most important part of football, but also not conceding goals; and if you score goals and you not conceding you are going to win. So that’s important that we are scoring goals, but we have to win – so that’s very important.”

Ajax are 12th and Maritzburg are 10th on the Premiership table, and Menzo says Ajax’s last nine games in the league will be like cup finals.

“This is a very important game for us and also Maritzburg because we are three points behind them and we want to get out of this 12th position and move higher up.

“So actually from now on it's finals – games that we have to win and get points! So, Saturday it’s going to be an interesting game.”
