Baxter’s SuperSport Aiming For Significant Points Total
SuperSport United take on Cape Town City tonight as they go in search of a points tally that will see them back on track.
Under Stuart Baxter, SuperSport could be set to finish inside the Absa Premiership’s top five for the first time since the 2013/14 season and could break the 50-point mark for the first time since 2011/12 when they finished third.
Matsatsantsa, who were top of the table for a spell, last won the league back in 2009/10 under the tutelage of Gavin Hunt, finishing the season with 57 points and have only gone above 50 points on one occasion since that campaign.
With the club equalling Kaizer Chiefs’ record of going 19 games unbeaten in a single season, they will now be focused on racking up as many points as possible and finishing as high up the table as they can.
SuperSport have already made sure that they have picked up their highest points tally since 2012 after hitting 45 points with the win over Polokwane City. Victories in their final three games would see them equal their highest total in recent years (54 points in 2012).
Baxter’s boys take on title challengers, Cape Town City, this evening and a win would almost entirely end the Citizens hopes of pushing for the league trophy.
