- Kaizer Chiefs are in danger of breaking their record for the lowest points haul in a league season
- The club’s current lowest-ever total was set during the 2006/07 season when they only earned 42 points
- The Amakhosi currently have 38 points with three tricky games remaining
Kaizer Chiefs could break an unwanted record this season as they are in danger of beating their lowest-ever points haul in the league.
Chiefs’ current lowest ever total occurred during the 2006/07 campaign when they amassed a meagre 42 points for the season.
The Amakhosi currently only have 38 points with three matches remaining.
Ironically, Ernst Middendorp was at the helm for part of that 2006 season, but was later replaced with Kosta Papic.
Amakhosi fans will be concerned about the parallels between 2006 and the current one.
The main issue during that campaign was the high number of draws and the trend has resurfaced again this term.
Chiefs essentially require five more points to overtake their lowest points haul.
TimesLIVE reported that Middendorp’s points per game averages 1.54 compared to the 1.29 earned under Solinas’ tenure.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Chiefs’ remaining three fixtures will all prove challenging.
They take on Bloemfontein Celtic in a neutral venue, followed by two teams battling relegation, Free State Stars and Chippa United.
