Chiefs' Middendorp: They Fight For Their Lives

Kaizer Chiefs may have a seven-point advantage at the top of the log, but Head Coach Ernst Middendorp is still weary of the job they still have to do in their remaining matches.

Chiefs still have to come up against Mamelodi Sundowns, and Bidvest Wits twice in the Absa Premiership, this while also going to work against teams struggling at the bottom of the league standings.

However, speaking to the media after Chiefs’ 1-0 win over Orlando Pirates this past weekend, Middendorp also pointed out how while his side still have points to collect, an advantage could be that the teams in the top four, also still have to face each other.

“I am not a mathematician now, to do the science, I could do it with some education but it doesn’t bring you anything. Let’s prepare for the next game, AmaZulu next weekend. 

“I think the good thing is that they (Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates, Bidvest Wits) all play each other. We play Wits twice, Sundowns play Pirates, Wits play Sundowns and Pirates. I believe it is very crucial how you handle the matches against the so-called teams who are not in the chasing pack for the league title. 

“You go into their situation, knowing that teams like Baroka, AmaZulu, like Polokwane, we all play them and they fight for their lives in terms of staying in the league. So that makes it not easier, it makes it even more difficult,” he said.
