AmaKhosi a sure win

Johannesburg – With four games remaining in this season’s Absa Premiership, it seems as if Kaizer Chiefs will be crowned the champions while Cape sides Ajax and Chippa will most likely be relegated.

At the top of the table, Kaizer Chiefs are six points adrift ahead Platinum Stars and nine points ahead of rivals Orlando Pirates.

Amakhosi beat Moroka Swallows 3-1 on Saturday, while Platinum Stars were held to a one-all draw by bottom of the table Chippa United.

A win for Platinum Stars against the Chilli Boys could have seen them trailing Chiefs by four points, and with so few games remaining the chances of AmaKhosi losing two games is highly unlikely.

Pirates blew their chances of closing the gap in Platinum Stars, drawing one-all with Free State Stars. Third place is most likely the highest they’ll finish this season.

At the bottom of the table it’s been a disastrous season for Cape Town teams Ajax Cape Town and Chippa United.

Both side’s have occupied the lower half of the table for much of the season.

Black Leopards are flirting with relegation, lying third from the bottom having amassed 23 points.

Ajax Cape Town should have taken advantage of this opportunity -- a win would have put them ahead.

But instead the Urban Warriors were beaten 2-0 at home by Wits University -- a result the fans have become disappointingly used to this season.

Even with a coaching change, Chippa United will most likely be relegated.

Under the guidance of Mark Harrison, the Chilli Boys beat Swallows and drew against Stars, but at this stage it might be too late.

They are in dire need of at least three wins to stay clear of relegation.
