Ajax Cape Town official Thabiso ‘Shoes’ Mekuto admits that playing all their remaining fixtures in Gauteng will force them to re-strategise.
Both Ajax and their closest rivals Swallows FC are left with six games to finish the season as they chase the prize of automatic Premiership promotion.
But with the GladAfrica Championship set to finish in a bio-bubble in Gauteng, it means The Dube Birds will play all their remaining games in their home province.
Coastal team Ajax are currently on top of the log table with 48 points, while Swallows are on 41, followed closely by KwaZulu-Natal side Uthongathi FC on 40.
“It’s completely complicated, as you say, but the bottom line is we are in a new normal,” Mekuto tells KickOff.com.
“New normal means you will never get everything the way you usually do. And if you want to be a sportive person, you are not going to spoil what has been hard to put together by talking about home advantage and away advantage as whatever the case might be.
“In reality we are not high-altitude teams. Cape Town teams struggle in high altitudes, that’s the reality. But under these conditions or under the situation we are in you’d rather reserve all those comments and be South Africans and try to complete.
