DStv Premiership: TS Galaxy hand Kaizer Chiefs Top-8 boost

TS Galaxy’s player ability situation has seemingly offered Kaizer Chiefs a timely boost, with regards to their hopes of achieving their much-coveted top eight finish for 2020/2021 DStv Premiership campaign
It has been a terrible season for Chiefs, whose convincing opening day loss to Mamelodi Sundowns at, home seemed to set the tone with regards to how things would pan of for the Soweto giants. Since then, they have struggled to garner any positive moment, with a plethora of losses, accompanied by a lack of goals, making sure that the club was in for a very long and frustrating season.
The old adage states that “Numbers don’t lie” and it could not be more telling in the case of Chiefs. As it stands, they find themselves in ninth place, and three points off the top eight, which is considered their revised objective going into the last round of games for the season. What makes things even more interesting for the viewers, is what the scriptwriter has managed to serve up for the series finale.
The team that is just above Chiefs and occupying their prized position on the log is TS Galaxy. That is coincidently the team that they will play against in their last game of the season, in a match that will be billed as a six-pointer or a cup final.
Having conceded more goals than they have managed to score this season, Chiefs will be needing all the help they could possibly get in this fixture, and TS Galaxy may have just given them the advantage due to the players they have available for this crunch fixture. They will be playing this crucial fixture without two of their key defenders Given Msimango and Ebrahim Seedat.
That will no doubt increase the hopes and confidence of the Chiefs attackers, who gave themselves their own boost with a 3-2 come from behind victory over Golden Arrows on Wednesday. Can they now use this to their advantage and get the job done?
