Muhsin Ertugral, Ajax Cape Town coach, pictured, was impressed by the zeal his players showed against Golden Arrows in their 2-0 midweek win at Chatsworth Stadium.

The Urban Warriors' mentor hopes that his side will do likewise when they host Bidvest Wits University in a Castle Premiership game at Athlone Stadium tomorrow night.

The win against Arrows shot the Capetonians into the top eight bracket, where Ertugral believes they will stay and ultimately challenge for league honours this season.

"We're four points behind the log leaders, so it shows that everything is possible," he said.

He said Wits are a tough side with quality players and a highly experienced coach in Boebie Solomons.

Brent Carelse is expected to shine again after his fantastic midweek performance.

He created two of his side's goals and could have netted the third himself, but his shot went off the mark.

Wits' team manager George Mogotsi said they were taken aback by Jomo Cosmos, who walloped them 4-0 last week, but he said they will regroup and go for broke.

"We're a wounded side, we didn't expect such a drubbing from Cosmos. Our spirits are low but we're going down there for the full points," he said.

The Students will be without striker Abram Raselemane who was sent off against Cosmos. Lucas Sebona will take his place.
