League Title: Sundowns Extend Lead, Pirates Trail, Komphela Believes

Title Race: Steve Komphela Is Still Hopeful

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 09, 2018 04:17 PM

The race for the Absa Premiership title is heating up and as May 12 draws closer, Kaizer Chiefs’ Steve Komphela remains hopeful.

With four to five fixtures left to be played in the Absa Premiership, the title may or may not be decided on the last day of the league campaign.

Mamelodi Sundowns at the top, have comfortably placed a four point gap between themselves and Orlando Pirates in second place on the league standings, with the title arguably the Brazilians’ to lose at this point.  

Although, with Sundowns having five fixtures left to play, the Brazilians will want to make sure that they scoop maximum points, so as to avoid their rivals, Pirates, edging them to the title at the end of the season. 

Sundowns will have to drop more than four points and Pirates will have to win all their fixtures, should the Buccaneers want to be crowned champions.

However, for Chiefs, who are joined on 39 points with third-placed Maritzburg United, it could be difficult and unlikely at this point, but Amakhosi are still mathematically in the race to win the league title, this only should Pirates and Sundowns experience a really bad string of results. 

“It is not over yet, we are still in it, let’s go till there (are) two matches to go, one match or you mathematically out of it,” a confident Steve Komphela said about Chiefs’ title hopes.

"Be honest guys. How do you win against a team that keeps changing coaches? You come having analysed Moloi's approach and what happens, you find a Mlungu on the bench! You can all see that these teams are very strong don' deny it. How dare they bring on the same boy that I chased away because he was so fat and slow. I could not beleive that Manqele had lost so much weight. And sooner than I had to analyse his new look, the boy scores! What can you do facing such an ambush? Take it on the chin, go back to wait for more eventualities. Without any charm, what do you do? Its life." Concluded the learned one.
