It’s within our reach – Rodgers


Ajax Cape Town striker Eleazar Rodgers believes promotion from the GladAfrica Championship to the Absa Premiership is now within their reach.

The Urban Warriors currently sit on top of the log standings with 38 points after 19 matches, in second place it is Uthongathi FC who are on 35 points.

“It’s definitely within our reach and possible we can go all the way,” Rodgers told FARPost.

“We have done well to be where we are, but the job is far from over. We still have few games to play, which will not be easy. We are definitely (targeting promotion), it is a goal we set ourselves this season and it’s the reason why all the teams play.

“Home games, maximum points should be a must and hopefully we can continue on our winning spree of games,” added the veteran striker.

“The Bible says with man it may seem impossible but with God all things are possible. I’m a man of faith and I believe we have what it takes to win the league,” said the 35-year-old experienced forward.

Rodgers and Ajax will be looking to stretch their lead at the top of the second-tier league table as they will lock horns against Free State Stars at Goble Part on Saturday, kickoff at 15:30.
