Three Teams Fight For Runners-Up Spot In DStv Premiership Title Race

The race for the runners-up spot in the DStv Premiership is heating up as SuperSport United, Orlando Pirates, and Kaizer Chiefs all compete for the coveted position. Orlando Pirates are set to face Richards Bay in their next match, where they’ll be looking to gain an advantage over their top-two rivals. The Pirates trail SuperSport by just two points in third place, having recently beaten them 1-0 in Soweto.

Meanwhile, Richards Bay is going through a rough patch, having lost five matches in a row and failing to win in their last seven. With Galaxy, Stellenbosch, and Royal AM all hot on their heels, the Natal Rich Boyz risk falling out of the top eight. SuperSport United, on the other hand, will be taking on Chippa United and looking to return to their winning ways after their loss to Orlando Pirates.

Stellenbosch will face off against Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium, hoping to maintain their momentum after a 2-0 triumph over AmaZulu in Stellenbosch. The Maroons are aiming to extend their unbeaten run in the league to six games and climb higher up the table. Amakhosi is close on the heels of their arch-rivals, Orlando Pirates, after their recent 3-2 win over Maritzburg United in Pietermaritzburg.

Elsewhere, AmaZulu will be taking on Swallows at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in the evening kick-off, looking to bounce back after losing to Stellenbosch. Usuthu has only won one of their last five games and is hoping for an improvement. The Dube Birds only have a three-point cushion to the bottom two following back-to-back defeats against Pirates and Golden Arrows.

On Sunday, Sekhukhune United will face Golden Arrows at the Princess Magogo Stadium, hoping to break their three-match winless streak. Babina Noko had a good start to life under Brandon Truter, going unbeaten in his first five games, but has failed to win in the last three. Abafana Bes’thende’s topsy-turvy season continued with a 1-0 success against Swallows, and they’ll be hoping to continue their form against Sekhukhune United.

Finally, TS Galaxy will take on Maritzburg United at the Mbombela Stadium, where Fadlu Davids’s side will be desperate for maximum points. The Team of Choice occupy the relegation playoff spot after losing five games in a row and failing to win in their last six matches. The Rockets are looking to continue their resurgence after a big win over Richards Bay, stretching their unbeaten streak to five games with three victories and two draws during that run.

The upcoming fixtures promise to be exciting as the three teams fight for the runners-up spot in the DStv Premiership. It remains to be seen who will emerge victorious in this tight race.
