Chiefs, SuperSport Officially Out Of The Title Race

Steve Komphela has often spoken about Kaizer Chiefs not giving up in the Absa Premiership title race, but now he will have to. They’re mathematically out of it.
 
 
This weekend’s draw with Golden Arrows alongside Bidvest Wits’ victory over Maritzburg United meant that the Amakhosi are now officially out race to land the league trophy, with it being reduced to a three-horse race.
 
SuperSport United also found themselves dumped out of contention this weekend despite a victory over Polokwane City, with the Amakhosi and Matsatsantsa now aiming for second and third place respectively.
 
Chiefs have bettered their tally of 46 points from last season – they currently have 47, however, it does guarantee that they will finish the campaign without a piece of silverware for the second consecutive year. 
 
 
The club conceded late goals in their last three games to drop a total of five points as their title hopes slipped away, much to the dismay of their head coach, Steve Komphela.
 
Komphela will now be hoping to end the season on a high as they chase a spot in a CAF interclub competition, however, they will have to stage a rethink in the offseason as the Glamour Boys seek to get back to winning ways in 2017/18.
