On Wednesday evening, SuperSport United are playing the defending champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, who are fourth on the Absa Premiership log and have games in hand, which leaves them with a chance of making it to the top of the table by the end of the season.
The next team from their fixture list is Bidvest Wits, who are third and also have the games in hand to put them in a similar situation to Sundowns.
Four days later, second placed Kaizer Chiefs will be visiting them for another three-point battle. They will then host Bloemfontein Celtic before meeting the fourth title contender and current log leaders, Cape Town City.
So, even if SuperSport United may be considered to be out of the title race, we can rest assured that they are going to have a huge say in who wins it.
