Kaizer Chiefs stand to record their worst ever season in the Absa Premiership and failure to beat Chippa United on Saturday will see them recording their lowest number of points in the Premier Soccer League era.
Chiefs’ 1-all draw with Free State Stars at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday means that they remain stuck on the seventh spot with 39 points and they are still not assured of a top-eight finish.
The lowest number of points collected by Chiefs was 42 back in the 2006/2007 and interestingly, Ernst Middendorp was the coach that season and they finished outside the top eight.
Amakhosi striker Bernard Parker says it was another matter of two points dropped by his side.
Chiefs haven’t won a game in the last six Absa Premiership matches played with four draws and two losses.
They last won in the league on the ninth of March against bottom-placed Maritzburg United.
As they head to another relegation-threatened team in Chippa later this week, Parker says they need three points from this game.
In the last six matches, Chiefs has only scored four goals but they’ve got one last hope and that’s the Nedbank Cup trophy where they play against the National First Division side TS Galaxy in the final on the 18th of this month in Durban. Parker remains hopeful. – Report by Velile Mnyandu
