Ajax and Cosmos are set for a thriller opener
The National First Division is just two days away from kicking off, the most anticipated fixture of the weekend is the clash at Vosloorus stadium between Jomo Cosmos and Ajax Cape Town. Last time these two sides clashed was in the 2015/16 season and the game was a two all draw. With both sides hoping to get a good start in the NFD and ensuring that come May 2019 they will win promotion to the top tier of South African football.
“All the signings that we have made is looking ahead for the season in the NFD, we want to build a team that sustains for a couple of years. So hopefully we gonna make it and next season we won’t change it. I want to build a PSL side” said Ertugral
Life in the NFD is totally different from the PSL, Cosmos has been one side that has bounced between the two leagues, last season they had the opportunity to win promotion via the playoff but they lost out to Black Leopards. The Parow based side has made a couple of experienced signings with the likes of Raymond Monama and former Kaizer Chiefs defender Sibusiso Khumalo.
“I know Jomo, I respect him a lot, he went through a rough patch. At the moment you can’t say anything it’s not like in the PSL, you don’t know your opponents but what I know Jomo will have a competitive team because he was also a competitive player concluded the Turkish”
The match kicks off at 15:00pm this coming Sunday the 19th.
