Menzo: We are lacking confidence

Ajax Cape Town coach Stanley Menzo says his team is struggling for confidence going into a tough game against a well disciplined Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday night. 

The Urban Warriors come into the game on the back of 2-0 loss away to Free State Stars midweek.

“The game is not going to be easy. Bloemfontein Celtic is playing with lots of confidence at the moment. It is a team with good discipline, good organization and they are going to face a team lacking in confidence at the moment. It is going going to be a tough game considering the position we are in (Ajax lie in 14th place on the log).” Menzo said.

The game will probably feel like an away game for Ajax as they will be playing their first game at Athlone stadium this season and had a long trip to Bethlehem in Free State midweek – the trip included a long bus trip from Johannesburg and back.

On the other hand, Celtic got to play there on Tuesday night when they beat Cape Town City 1-0 and have remained in Cape Town since Tuesday preparing for this game.

“It is a pity that they (Celtic) have an advantage of playing there on Tuesday. They know the pitch, we do not know – we could not train there. I need to prepare my team to probably play differently to the way we play, the build ups might not be what we want them to be.” Menzo said.

The match at Althlone Stadium will kick off at 20:15.
