Chiefs In Danger Of Worst PSL Campaign…

Kaizer Chiefs need to make sure that they pick up at least four points from their last four games if they’re to avoid equalling their worst PSL campaign ever.
 
 
The Amakhosi are currently fourth in the Absa Premiership following last weekend’s 3-0 defeat to Chippa United, and after 26 games have only 39 points to their name.
 
Steve Komphela is under increasing pressure at Naturena as the end of his current contract draws closer, and with Platinum Stars, Golden Arrows, Maritzburg United and Ajax Cape Town left to play, he needs to start picking up results if he’s to avoid missing out on a CAF spot for the third consecutive year.
 
Furthermore, if Chiefs don’t finish third this season, then it will be the first time since the formation of the PSL that they’ve finished outside the top three for three seasons in a row, a record that Komphela will be eager to avoid. 
 
 
Chiefs’ worst ever campaign in terms of points tally came back in 2006/07 when they finished ninth on 42 points. The following year was marginally better as they picked up 43 and finished sixth. If they get less than three points from four games then it will be officially their worst season with regards to points since the PSL era began.
 
The maximum points they can achieve this year is 51, a total that would be worse than 11 of their tallies since 1996/97, and that is only possible if they win all four of their remaining games, but to finish third they must also rely on Maritzburg to drop points.
 
Komphela’s Glamour Boys finished with 46 points in his first season and 50 in his second, and he will be desperate to make sure that he doesn’t drop below that this time around.
