Tussle for the ball between Moroka Swallows and Kaizer Chiefs midfielders

JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – AFTER experiencing mixed fortunes in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) competitions, the Absa Premiership front-runners return to league action on Wednesday evening.

The spotlight will once again fall on pacesetters Kaizer Chiefs who appear nonetheless to be losing steam as the campaign draws to a conclusion.

The Soweto giants have let slip a double-digit gap at the top slashed to eight points at 51 points.

Chiefs’s struggles continued in the Champions League this past weekend as they fell 1-0 to Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca.

Amakhosi thus cannot afford to slip against relegation-threatened and crisis-torn Moroka Swallows when the teams meet at the Dobsonville Stadium.

Second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns, who are eight points adrift with a game in hand, are also in action on Wednesday at home in Pretoria.

The in-form defending champions, appear to have an easier assignment on paper against a Chippa United side that is on a freefall.

Downs will further be buoyed by their Champions League victory over ex-African champions TP Mazembe.

Meanwhile, Orlando Pirates, who are still in with a slim chance to win the title, will play struggling Mpumalanga Black Aces at Orlando Stadium, the venue of their 2-1 win over Ugandan side, URA, on Saturday.
