Chiefs Given Warning On Points

Kaizer Chiefs, the Soweto heavyweights, have been told not to tally the points for the games they still have to play.

Amakhosi has 16 points after 16 games, while Mamelodi Sundowns has 19 points after 19 games. After a Covid-19 outbreak at the Village, Chiefs were unable to play two of the matches they were scheduled to play in December, against Cape Town City and Golden Arrows.

Former Amakhosi goalkeeper Aubrey Mathibe believes the club should forget about the points earned in the two matches they did not attend and instead concentrate on the remaining Premiership games in order to compete for a top-three finish.

"It's difficult to count the points from the games in hand because the competition is fierce and everyone is performing well, so the remaining months of the season will be difficult." However, if you look at how things were before the break, you can see that there was some momentum. It would be beneficial for them to compete for the top three positions in order to qualify for one of the CAF tournaments. Even if those six points (from the matches) are taken away from them

"I believe they will have a terrific season if they can finish second or third, allowing them to compete for the league next season. They should forget about the six points and battle for second or third place, in my opinion, because Sundowns is too far ahead."
