Kaizer Chiefs – Worst PSL Start In A Decade

Kaizer Chiefs are enduring their worst start to a league campaign in exactly a decade, with Steve Komphela’s men having only picked up 16 points out of a possible 36 so far.
 
 
The Amakhosi were held once again over the weekend as they had to fight back from behind to draw with Free State Stars, securing their seventh defeat of the season and failing to add to their tally of just two wins.
 
Despite their form, Chiefs are still in contention for the Absa Premiership title as they find themselves just three points behind log leaders, Baroka, although at this point nearly half of the league have scored more than them.
 
The club’s current points tally is the lowest that Chiefs have had after 12 games since the 2007/08 season – then they had 13 – in a season when they went on to finish sixth behind the likes of SuperSport United, Ajax Cape Town, Santos, Mamelodi Sundowns and Ea Lla Koto. 
 
 
Chiefs’ last 11 seasons after 12 games:
 
17/18 - 16 points
 
16/17 - 17 points 
 
15/16 - 21 points
 
14/15 - 32 points
 
13/14 - 24 points
 
12/13 - 27 points
 
11/12 - 21 points
 
10/11 - 23 points 
 
09/10 - 17 points
 
08/09 - 19 points
 
07/08 - 13 points
 
Chiefs now have three games left before the end of the year as they look to turn around their fortunes, and they will no doubt be keen to add nine more points to the board as Komphela seeks to relieve some of the pressure growing on him.
