For the first time in Bidvest Wits' history, they secured the ABSA Premiership league title after they recorded a 2-0 win in their penultimate match of the season against Polokwane City. With fellow title contenders Mamelodi Sundowns drawing 2-2 against Maritzburg United on the same night, the win for the Students sent them four points clear at the top of the log.
Mamelodi Sundowns currently have some of their players loaned out at various clubs in the PSL and the NFD. The Chloorkop club is not only fighting against Bidvest Wits for the league title, but their players Cuthbert Malajila and Mogakolodi Ngele are currently based with the Braamfontein team.
Orlando Pirates will take on Ajax Cape Town in a league encounter at Orlando Stadium tonight. The Buccaneers are currently 10th on the log with 32 points, and will want to beat the Urban Warriors, who are eighth with 35 points, to hold on to their hopes of making it into the top eight.
With two ABSA Premiership fixtures remaining this season, there is still no telling who will be crowned the league champions. However, Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt has four players at risk of missing their final match against Kaizer Chiefs, which could be the title decider.
Supporters have welcomed the news of the return to action of Kaizer Chiefs duo Siphiwe "Shabba" Tshabalala and Willard "Salt n Vinegar" Katsande, and have more to say about the club's last game of the season against log leaders, Bidvest Wits.
Orlando Pirates’ chances of securing a Top 8 spot this season are slim and as they face off against Ajax Cape Town tomorrow in a crucial ABSA Premiership league encounter, the Buccaneers will have to sink or swim.
