CAPE TOWN – Ajax Cape Town coach Stanley Menzo is confident his players can rediscover the form that saw them reel off a series of victories at the end of last year.

The Cape side hosts fellow-strugglers Highlands Park in a PSL fixture at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday night (kick-off 7.30pm) – and Menzo, despite the pressure he and his team are under, has not lost any belief. 

He remains as positive as ever and is certain his team is just one win away from turning things around.

“We need to find the key to start the engine again,” said Menzo at an Ajax press conference held at the former 2010 World Cup venue in Green Point on Tuesday. 

“The engine was working fine last year, but now we just cannot seem to find the key.

“But I see lots of positives, and the players are doing many good things, both at training and in the games. It’s just that we have not been able to turn those good things into a win. We have to change that… I believe that just one win will change the mental behaviour. The team is okay, it’s just that we have to score and we have to win.”
