Black Leopards – The Absa Premiership King Makers?

Black Leopards certainly won’t be winning the Absa Premiership this season, but it looks like they could have a massive say in who eventually does lift the title.

While Dylan Kerr’s mandate is to try and keep Lidoda Duvha in the top-flight this season, the club has arguably the toughest final run of games of any team in the division.

When the Englishman arrived at the club they were stuck in the relegation places and on a very bad run of form, now they’re 12th having managed to clamber up the table with a good run of results.

Leopards have eight games left to play in the Absa Premiership following today’s victory against Chippa United, and in those eight games they will face six teams currently inside the top seven – all of whom still have a shot at winning the title.

Next up for Kerr’s side is Orlando Pirates, after whom they will face Polokwane City, Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns, Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City, with a couple of games against AmaZulu and Maritzburg United thrown in there for good measure.

So, as Leopards fight for their own life, they’ll be looking to break some hearts at the other end of the table as the top teams battle for supremacy knowing that some of them face a tough trip to Thohoyandou.

Which teams do you think Leopards can beat?
