Zimbabwe international Gerald Takwara made his debut for Ajax Cape Town on Tuesday night in a 2-1 defeat against Mamelodi Sundowns.
The midfielder joined the Urban Warriors last week from FC Platinum.
Takwara came in as a substitute at halftime, replacing Roderick Kabwe. He made a fair contribution and was booked in the 89th minute when he fouled Sundowns captain Hlompho Kekana.
Team-mate Tendai Ndoro did not play as he is still waiting for a work permit.
On the other hand, Sundowns’ Khama Billiat is still recovering from an injury.
