Could Ajax Cape Town have two teams in the Absa Cup last-16 stage and even more interesting, could Ajax draw Ajax in a battle for a place in the quarterfinal?

That much will be known by Sunday evening after the Urban Warriors first team's match against Fidentia Rangers at 3.15pm and the Ajax CT reserve side against regional Second Division side Mosterjeug FC, of Upington, also at 3.15pm in the Northern Cape.

Senior team coach Muhsin Ertugral does not hide his ambition of reaching his second final of the season and this time winning it.

"We're playing another cup tournament and after reaching the final of the previous cup competition (Telkom Knockout), the players will surely raise the bar," Ertugral said on his club's website.

"I know nothing about Rangers and with such an unpredictable team, we must be careful of them. They might not be enjoying the same place with us, but we must respect them."

Rangers, coached by former Bafana Bafana defender Andrew Tucker, also fancy their chances.

Said Tucker: "We have nothing to lose and so much to gain. They are on top of us standard-wise, but we are not going to worry about them."

Craig Rosslee's reserves also want to prove their worth.
