Chiefs/Aces Done, And Then There Were Three

The reigning Absa Premiership champions, Kaizer Chiefs, had any slim chance of retaining their title snuffed out last night as they were held by Ajax Cape Town.
 
 
As of yesterday evening, Steve Komphela’s Amakhosi are now officially out of the title race after drawing 0-0 with the Urban Warriors, as are Muhsin Ertugral’s Mpumalanga Black Aces following Mamelodi Sundowns’ win over Jomo Cosmos.
 
Having drawn more games than any other club this season, the chances of them making a challenge for the title have been growing slimmer by the week, and their current five-game winless streak has now put it to bed.
 
Orlando Pirates, who are sixth, were mathematically ruled out earlier this week, and now Chiefs – who have scored just three goals since the start of March – and Aces are the latest teams to now be mathematically out of the title race.
 
This weekend’s results mean that leaders, Sundowns, second-placed Bidvest Wits and Platinum Stars, who play today, are the final three clubs vying for the Absa Premiership trophy.
 
Defeat for Dikwena against SuperSport this afternoon would also see them all but out of it, however for a long time now it has been judged to be a two-horse race between Wits and Sundowns.
 
Meanwhile, even if Chiefs win all of their remaining games and reach 56 points, they will still be recording their worst points tally since the 2011/12 season when they finished fifth.
