APE TOWN - Ajax Cape Town head coach Muhsin Ertugral expects a different ball game altogether at Orlando Stadium this weekend in a Nedbank Cup Round of 32 showdown.

The Urban Warriors thumped their top-flight counterparts 3-0 in an Absa Premiership clash last week, but Orlando Pirates have an opportunity for swift revenge when they host the Cape side in Soweto on Saturday evening (start at 8.15pm).

“It will be a different game altogether,” said Ertugral.

“I can’t wait for kick-off at Orlando Stadium. I know how difficult it is for opposing teams to play in Soweto.

“Micho is a great coach and they are very close to success under his guidance. We know how difficult this game will be.

“They will come at us, but I think they’ll be a little bit more cautious this time around,” he concluded.
