Ajax wallop Tshakhuma to keep promotional hopes alive

Ajax Cape Town destroyed Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila 5 - 1 in a PSL Promotional /relegation playoffs tie played at the BidVest Stadium in Johannesburg on Tuesday afternoon.

An Eleazar Rodgers second half hat trick gave the Urban Warriors a much needed win going into the their last game against Black Leopards on Friday afternoon.

It was the Venda based side that started the brightest and were rewarded with a priceless goal in the 11th minute when their on form man Nevhulamba put them in front with a neat finish.

Ajax struggled in the first half, although they created chances but were unable to find the equalizer.

Calvin Marlin must have said something scary during the half time break as they came back with renewed energy and equalized 2 minutes into the second half through Mkhize, 1 - 1. Three minutes later, Ajax were in front for the first time in the game when Rodgers got into the act and he completed his brace 3 minutes later to make it 3 - 1 in the 53rd minute.

The drama was far from over as Chumani Butsaka made it 4 - 1 in the hour mark before Rodgers rounded up the scoring in the 65 minute from the penalty spot.

Leopards and Ajax are now tied with 6 points heading to Friday's game.
