Kaizer Chiefs could be heading into their match against Highlands Park today with a sense of confidence due to their dominant record against promoted teams over the course of the last five seasons.
Chiefs take on Allan Freese’s newly promoted side, that secured their top flight status in last season’s promotion/relegation playoff. And in 20 matches against promoted teams since the 2011/12 season, Chiefs have won more than half of those games.
Although, Highlands Park will look to the results that went against Kaizer Chiefs over the years, where Chiefs lost to Jomo Cosmos, Black Aces, the University of Pretoria and Black Leopards.
