'Pirates Can Still Contest For The League'

Kaizer Chiefs sit atop the PSL standings with 48 points while Mamelodi Sundowns remain hot on their heels, with 44 points a game in hand. While the title appears to be heading to either Naturena or Chloorkop, there is still an outside chance for the likes of Orlando Pirates & Bidvest Wits to challenge for the league glory. Only 10 points separate log-leaders Amakhosi from Bidvest Wits in 6th position.

While most PSL fans remain adamant that the title chase is a two-horse race, Orlando Pirates supporters felt that the Bucs deserve consideration as well. Answering an SL Radio fan poll, one listener responded: “Orlando Pirates FC can still contest for the league with Kaizer Chiefs FC and Mamelodi Sundowns FC."

Responding to the question “Who else in the Top 6 can challenge for the PSL title?”, another Pirates fan stated, “If not Pirates then I have no idea who else deserves this league, come on we been through a lot this season, give this beautiful football playing team a break.”
