6 Teams In Trouble, Ex-Bucs & Chiefs Duo Lead Chippa

At least six teams in the Absa Premiership could be in trouble as Chippa United look to be ready to move out of relegation zone, and on their way to finish 2019 in a better position on the log standings. 

Although the Port Elizabeth outfit is still at the bottom of the log, the team’s recent results suggest that Norman Mapeza is turning things around for the, side since taking over as the head coach.

Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Thabo Rakhale, as well as ex-Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs winger William Twala are some of the players that have been impressive in Chippa’s turnaround under the Zimbabwean coach.  

With three matches remaining for the year for the Eastern Cape club, against Baroka FC, Cape Town City and SuperSport United, Mapeza’s team could be on their way to a comfortable position inside the top 8 bracket on the log, should they maintain their form.  

15th-placed AmaZulu, Stellenbosch FC (14th), Leopards (13th), Baroka (12th), Cape Town City (11th) and Polokwane City (10th) are some of the teams that could find themselves in trouble as Chippa look to be on their way to moving up the standings.
