Matthews: SuperSport out of league race


Supersport United CEO Stan Matthews says his team is now officially out of the 2019/20 Absa Premiership title race.

With Matsatsantsa recently suffering a second successive defeat when they lost 1-0 to Stellenbosch FC, Matthews believes the Tshwane giants have lost ground on the title chase.

The Kaetano Tembo coached side is currently 4th on the log table with 34 points in 22 matches, eleven points behind table toppers Kaizer Chiefs.

“No we don’t….(stand a chance),” Matthews told FARPost.

“We have dropped too many points to teams below us in the table for that… 58 points shouldn’t be enough with the other four all having games in hand…so top 5 remains our target.”

SuperSport host Bidvest Wits at Mbombela Stadium tonight (20:15).
