PSL

Chippa Are NFD Champions

Chippa United have been crowned National First Division champions without kicking a ball after Baroka FC, Milano United and Jomo Cosmos all dropped valuable points. 

This means the Chilli Boys will play in the lucrative PSL next season, while seven second-tier sides fight for just two play-offs spots with three games to go.

On Friday evening at the Athlone Stadium, Baroka and Santos played to a 1-1 draw with the visitors grabbing an early lead through Excellent Mokobane before David Radebe’s late equaliser ensured the Peoples Team acquired their fortieth point.

In the Free Sate, there was another draw (0-0), this time between Maluti FET College and Milano United which means Eezy my Kinnes have moved up to 43 points, the same as Baroka but one behind second-placed Black Leopards.

With Cosmos suffering a 2-1 loss to Thanda Royal Zulu, for whom Velile Zitha and Michael Gumede were on the score sheet, they remain on 42 points.

Vasco da Gama are also in the mix following a similar 2-1 home win over Roses United who now require three wins to avoid the dreaded drop.

The first half belonged to Clinton Larsen’s team, especially after an error at the back by Waseem Isaacs that allowed Marosa to open the scoring in the 8th minute via Vusi Shikwela.

The Parow outfit then squandered numerous chances to level matters but came back boldly in the second period through successful strikes from Lucky Khune and Samuel Julies.

Vasco and United FC currently share 41 points, in fact, with three points separating seven clubs, the next few weeks are going to be a real dog fight.

At the lower end of the table, Blackburn Rovers have officially been relegated after going down 1-0 to African Warriors. 

Rodney Nzimande netted for Warriors.

Chippa’s match tomorrow against Witbank Spurs at the Puma Rugby Stadium is of no consequence because Siyavutha are out of the play-off race.
