“Who will win the PSL?” – Reader’s Voice

There are several teams that are expected to win the Absa Premiership, but some are facing a reality check, after suffering this season. Who are the teams that are still in the running to win the Absa Premiership this season?

Orlando Pirates fans will feel annoyed that their team is floating just above the relegation zone.

At the beginning of the season, Dr Khoza, signed a lot of players such as Ayanda Nkosi, Justice Chabalala, Abubaker Mobara and Donald Makudubela, to name a few, as the Buccaneers seemed tired of going so many years without winning a trophy. Mushin Ertugral was brought in to make sure that this was a great 80th anniversary year for the "happy people". But, this has been a season to forget for Pirates.

Reigning African champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, were favourites to retain their title, but after a defeat to Kaizer Chiefs and a five-match winless run, their hopes are quickly fading away. Their hectic schedule is not helping as they try to defend their league title.

Bidvest Wits should be favourites with their squad and two games in hand. They lie second and have a coach who knows how to win league titles. Being knocked out of the Nedbank Cup could be a blessing for their title aspirations.

SuperSport United could be derailed by competing on three fronts, like Downs. The news that their coach is leaving for Bafana could also challenge the players mentally.

Kaizer Chiefs at one stage seemed out of the race but, after going undefeated since December, they have bought themselves back into it. If Amakhosi can avoid draws against weaker opposition, then they could go on and lift the trophy.
