"WE CAN be unbeatable." That's the view of Santos coach Boebie "Mzala" Solomons after their close but deserved 1-0 derby win against Ajax Cape Town on Saturday night.

"Santos are determined and our performance say it all but I keep on telling the guys that they must focus and be disciplined and with that in their minds, I see no team beating us," said a happy Solomons after this victory at Athlone Stadium in Cape Town.

He says his players are in fact very confident. "They've told me they want to and they can win all our remaining games," he said.

"I am excited that we won tonight's game and we are preparing for our next game on Tuesday (tomorrow) against Mamelodi Sundowns."

It was Santos second win over Ajax this season after beating them 2-0 in the first round at Newlands Stadium.

Even in the last 20 minutes of the match when Santos played with 10 men, they kept Ajax at bay. Santos were reduced to 10 men in the 70th minute when referee Jerome Damon showed Bonginkosi Macala the red card for a second bookable offence.

Santos' solitary goal came in the 29th minute through Erwin Isaacs who converted Graham Kings' square pass into a goal leaving the lanky Ajax's keeper, Hans Vonk stranded on the turf.

Despite the loss, their coach, Foppe de Haan, is still optimistic that his charges will bounce back and start winning games.

The Urban Warriors' mentor was also happy with his team's performance, while the team's followers believe that Ajax led them down by losing to Santos.

"I know that our fans are not happy tonight (Saturday) that we lost to Santos," he said.

Ajax are hosting log leaders SuperSport United in a 3.30pm kick-off league game at the Boland Stadium in Wellington tomorrow.
