Kaizer Chiefs Move out of the Top 8 in PSL Log Table

Kaizer Chiefs has moved out of the top eight in the Premier Soccer League log table.

After securing the top eight spot on Saturday following a 4-0 victory over Chippa United, Amakhosi have bowed out of the top eight on Tuesday evening.

This comes after AmaZulu defeated TS Galaxy on Tuesday evening by 1-0.

Usuthu managed to leapfrog Chief, Orlando Pirates and their KwaZulu Natal rivals Golden Arrows and secured a top six spot.

Usuthu started the game slow as both sides did not pose much danger in the first half.

Both sides had chances to score in the first half but could not use any one the chances.

As a results the game went to halftime with a goalles draw.

Usuthu came back very desperate in the second half as time was running out for Benni McCarthy's side who were gunning for a top eight spot.

In the 56 minutes Luvuyo Memela found the back of the net and put the visitors in the lead.

Galaxy tried to push for an equalizer but it was not meant to be.

Instead the team was reduced to ten man after Sanoka was shown a red card in the 71th minutes and the game ended with 1-0 in favour of Amazulu.

Following Usuthu's victory Chiefs slipped to the ninth position in the log table.

The Naturena based outfit will have a chance to reclaim their top eight position on Sunday when they visit the on-form Supersport United.

However Amakhosi are on level points with Pirates and Arrows, the three sides are separated by goal difference which favours both Pirates and Arrows over Chiefs.

Chiefs however has more games compared to the other two teams and both teams will be in action tomorrow against Mamelodi Sundowns and Maritzburg United.

If Pirates and Arrows both win tomorrow, Chiefs will also have to win on Sunday to reclaim a top eight spot.
