Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Thabo Rakhale, as well as ex-Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs winger William Twala are some of the players that have been impressive in Chippa’s turnaround under the Zimbabwean coach.  

With three matches remaining for the year for the Eastern Cape club, against Baroka FC, Cape Town City and SuperSport United, Mapeza’s team could be on their way to a comfortable position inside the top 8 bracket on the log, should they maintain their form.  

15th-placed AmaZulu, Stellenbosch FC (14th), Leopards (13th), Baroka (12th), Cape Town City (11th) and Polokwane City (10th) are some of the teams that could find themselves in trouble as Chippa look to be on their way to moving up the standings.
