Chiefs Weak In Title Run-Ins?

As yet another Premier Soccer League race heads into the final laps, we as Kaizer Chiefs are looking to challenge for another league title in the hope of snatching the trophy from reigning champions Mamelodi Sundowns.

Things may not totally be going according to coach Stuart Baxter’s plans the final quarter of the season, particularly after ending the first half of season on an unbeaten high.

Can it be said that we are becoming weaker during title run-ins? Well… for the last couple of seasons that has been the case.

Generally, bigger teams tend to separate themselves from the rest of the pack in times when points are needed the most. This is due to experience and sheer superiority in talent - as the best players in the land shine when the going gets tough.

It’s been an indifferent second half of the season for us and it feels like a repeat of last season’s league title run-in. In all honesty, we ran out of steam at a time when Sundowns found an extra canister of gas.

This time around, Downs look to be the in-form team in the league, while we are slipping at the top of the table. Also, we have lost four out of our last five fixtures in all competitions, and that doesn’t sit well with confidence.

Our list of upcoming fixtures in the league is also by no means easy, as we still have to face off against both Bidvest Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns. Both of these clubs have been a real thorn in our flesh in the last couple of seasons and at the rate we currently going, we may be facing these teams at the wrong time.

Having said that, do we become weaker towards the end of a season?
