Clifford "Robot" Ngobeni, the influential Ajax Cape Town midfielder, hopes they will return to winning ways in the Castle Premiership at the expence of neighbours Santos.

The two meet in what is bound to be an exciting Cape Town derby at Athlone Stadium tomorrow at 8pm.

The Urban Warriors are fifth on the log with 34 points from 22 games, with the People's Team 11th on 29 points from the same number of matches.

Ajax and Santos go into the match with their tails between their legs after being shown the stars in their last league matches.

Santos were defeated 2-1 by Jomo Cosmos in Witbank a fortnight ago, while Ajax went down 0-1 to Black Leopards at home.

But Ngobeni, one of the most outstanding players this season, said they wanted to transfer their winning form from the Absa Cup to the league.

The Urban Warriors qualified for the second round of the Cup of Dreams after defeating trouble-torn Fidentia Rangers 2-0 last weekend.

"We are aware that it will be a tough match, derbies are always difficult because we are going to be ruthless," said Ngobeni.

On the other hand, Santos striker Koena Mathopa said they were confident of winning to finish the season in the top eight bracket.

"We have been training hard and are ready for the match. Our plan is to pocket the three points because we want to qualify for the top eight," said Mathopa.

Santos are also through to the second round of the Absa Cup after pipping Free State Stars 1-0 in a midweek match.
