Title On Line For Chiefs And Wits?

Kaizer Chiefs take on Wits in an absolutely crucial Absa Premiership encounter tonight. The Glamour Boys trail Mamelodi Sundowns by six points with two games in hand in the league.

However, if Chiefs don't pick up a full complement of points against the Clever Boys, it could give Downs a huge advantage in the final stretch of the league race. 

Wits are also still mathematically in with a chance of challenging for the PSL crown, although it seems the real contenders are Downs and Chiefs. 

Nonetheless, if Chiefs aren't able to pick up six points from their two games-in-hand, it would appear that the Brazilians would be more or less out of sight in the final reckoning. Yet, a victory for Gavin Hunt's men could theoretically keep them in the chase.

Chiefs' number 10, Bernard Parker, has emphasised how much the game against the Students means this evening. 

He told the club's official website, "Wits is on a high and their confidence is sky high too. I see them looking for a win knowing at the back of their minds that it’s possible for them to win the league as well, said Parker.

"Last week we did the job, we played well and yes it motivated us for our next league encounter. Every match at this stage is a must win. Polokwane City was poised to cause an upset by beating us as they are fighting the relegation battle.The same with Wits who are fighting to win the league, they too will pose the same challenge, " he added.

Parker added that the final run-in of games was going to be crucial in terms of the title race, "We are well aware and looking to win all our last remaining matches (Wits, Free State Stars, Tuks & AmaZulu). We know that defending our title is in our hands. I'm 100% sure we want to hold on tight to our trophies. We know how much it will mean to us as players and to the masses that support the team," Parker concluded.

Tonight's action gets underway from 19h30 in Johannesburg.
