Why Chiefs Must Beat Chippa…

Kaizer Chiefs have to beat Chippa United for two reasons according to Bernard Parker, with the club at real risk of missing out on the MTN8 for the first time.

Since the MTN8 tournament in it’s current format began more than a decade ago, the Glamour Boys have always been a part of it – starting by winning the competition in it’s inaugural year in 2008. 

After this weekend’s 1-1 result with Free State Stars though, the club find themselves in seventh place by just one point, and could finish as low as 10th depending on how results go on the final day of the 2018/19 season next weekend.

The Amakhosi go up against the Chilli Boyz – who are battling against relegation as they go into the final day – knowing that whatever happens it will be their worst league finish since the 2006/07 season when they ended up with just 42 points.

Speaking to Chiefs’ official website as they look to move on from the weekend’s result, Bernard Parker said, “It is done and dusted now. We will take the positives from this game towards the next, which is an important match against Chippa United.

“We want to finish the season on a high, Chippa will be desperate for points to stay in the league, while we want to consolidate a top eight finish. We have to win the game to boost our confidence ahead of the Nedbank Cup Final.”

Chiefs will travel to Port Elizabeth, where they actually won their last trophy (2014/15 Absa Premiership title), where they will be eager to at least try and end the season on a high before going up against TS Galaxy in the Nedbank final a week later.
