Ajax Cape Town winless this season

​Ajax Cape Town are still winless in the 2016/17 Absa Premiership season after going down 1-0 to Cape Town City at Cape Town Stadium on Friday night.

City won the first Cape derby between the two sides thanks to a goal from Bhongolwethu Jayiya.

The start of the first half saw both teams pushing forward in attack, but their decision making in the final third was poor.

The first real opening came in the 21st minute when Jayiya tapped home from close range to give City a 1-0 lead.

Ajax went into the break trailing by a goal.

The visiting side came out firing in the second half and almost equalised in the 55th minute when a Bantu Mzwakali cross was headed just wide by Mosa Lebusa.

In the 64th minute Aubrey Ngoma was inches away from doubling City’s lead when he met a cross with a strong header, but it came off the post.

Ajax threw numbers forward as the game drew to a close and equalised in the 80th minute when a good cross into the box was met by Nathan Paulse, but his effort skimmed the wrong side of the post.

Ajax could not find an equaliser as they suffered their second loss of the season and remain without a win. They are on two points from four games.

City, on the other hand, picked up their second win from four games and have seven points.

Certain AjaxCTfans are calling for Rogers head but the fact is we need results so give us what we want #WeAreAjax
