Kaizer Chiefs would be ahead of Cape Town City on the Absa Premiership standings if the Amakhosi had held on their lead the final minutes of their last three league outings. Instead, they are five points adrift the Cape Town-based side.
Kaizer Chiefs Give Away 16 Points From Winning Positions
The Amakhosi have battled to hold onto leads throughout the course of this season, failing to win seven of the games in which they had gone ahead.
Steve Komphela’s side dropped a total of five points in their last three games as they conceded late goals against City, SuperSport United and Golden Arrows, throwing away leads against the latter two.
Chiefs have actually given away a total of 16 points from winning positions over the course of this season, drawing five and losing two of the games when they were in front at some stage. They’ve conceded six goals in the last 15 minutes of games.
Only Ajax Cape Town have dropped points in the same amount of games, however, only one of their turnarounds was a defeat, as they drew six of the seven matches in which they were leading.
Bidvest Wits, City and SuperSport are the only two of the top eight sides in the league standings that have lost an Absa Premiership game after taking the lead, although they have drawn three, two and five games respectively from winning positions.
