Chiefs – Real Contenders Or Pretenders? Reader’s Voice

Early pace setters Kaizer Chiefs have extended the lead at the top of the Absa Premiership table to 10 points from second placed and defending Champions, Mamelodi Sundowns.

After bowing out of the Telkom Knockout last week, Chiefs had to shift their focus to the league. Facing a relegation threatened Stellenbosch, it was never going to be easy but coach Ernst Middendorp, had a plan up his sleeves.

 With Stellies yet to lose at home Chiefs, had a mammoth of a task to accomplish. The Naturena based outfit continued with their fine form and claimed a convincing 4-0 victory over a struggling Stellenbosch outfit.

It was a one way traffic at the Cape Town Stadium with Chiefs calling the shots. Chiefs are on course to end their well-documented trophy drought. Though it won't be easy for Chiefs but they remain favourites to clinch their first piece of silverware in five seasons.

Samir 'My Friend' Nurkovic was not a good friend of Stellies as he grabbed a brace to help his side collect maximum points. The Serbian hitman remains an eminent threat to defenders aerially and he packs a powerful shot. Nurkovic is the go to guy when it comes to scoring with five goals under his name after eleven rounds of matches this season.

Are Chiefs genuine contenders this season?
