Pruijn: Tasked with Ajax turn-around

Ajax Cape Town will be looking to kick-start their ailing PSL season when they host fellow strugglers Black Leopards on Sunday afternoon.

The Urban Warriors have managed just two wins in the Premiership this season to sit 13th in the standings, two points above the relegation zone after nine matches.

Their most recent outing also ended in defeat, a 2-1 reverse at Free State Stars on Wednesday, leaving the pressure firmly on interim coach Jan Pruijn and his squad.

Lidoda Duvha, meanwhile, have fared only marginally better this term and sit one point, and two places, ahead of the Cape outfit.

Leopards, though, have only lost two of their opening nine matches, but with six draws and one win the Limpopo-based side will need a quick turn-around in form if they are to avoid another relegation scrap in 2012/13.

Pruijn is set to hand veteran midfielder Koen van der Laak a late fitness test as he looks to regain his full fitness in time for the kick-off.

New signing Wanderson Costa Viana, though, is still lacking in the fitness department and will have to wait longer before he makes his full debut for the coastal club.

Leopards, now under the mentorship of Ian Palmer, will be looking to hand the new tactician his first win since succeeding Sunday Chidzambwa, with the former beginning his tenure with a 1-0 defeat to Platinum Stars in midweek.
