AmaTuks after Ajax's scalp

The name AmaTuks, the moniker of National First Division giant killers University of Pretoria, is on the lips of many a football fan lately. Kick off is at 3pm.

The Tshwane club is respected in football circles after their fairy-tale ride in the prestigious Nedbank Cup where they claimed the scalps of Premiership giants Kaizer Chiefs and the well-backed Bloemfontein Celtic to negotiate their way to the semifinals of the competition.

And they are well-placed to beat another Premiership club, Ajax Cape Town in a semifinal at Milpark Stadium on Sunday.

After their earlier heroics, it is not surprising that coach Steve Barker believes they can beat the Urban Warriors.

But it will be foolhardy of Barker and his young soldiers to write off Ajax because they have enough in their armoury to lift the trophy that carries a R6 million first prize.

Barker, who is the nephew of AmaZulu mentor Clive Barker, told Sowetan yesterday they will not be threatened by Ajax's past results in cup matches.

"It will be a new match on Sunday and we are 100 percent ready for it. We are going to treat this match the same way we prepare for others," said Barker, whose side have been bolstered by the return of defender and captain Obert Moyo.

Attempts to get comment from coach Craig Rosslee of Ajax drew a blank yesterday as he was preparing for last night's league game against Thanda Royal Zulu.

The visitors' rearguard has been reinforced by the return of Brett Evans and Nazeer Allie but they should be vigilant of AmaTuks's leading goal-scorer Thabo Moleko.
