Chiefs could set new PSL mark

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs could eclipse the all-time Absa Premiership record for longest domestic winning run when they travel to Ajax Cape Town on Sunday.

According to the website, the Amakhosi have claimed 12 wins in a row in all competitions so far this season – seven in the league, four in lifting the MTN8 and a success last time out over Maritzburg United in the Telkom Knockout.

Add that to their two victories at the tail end of the 2013/14 campaign when they beat University of Pretoria and AmaZulu, and Chiefs’ winning run in all competitions stands at 14.

That is the same mark that Mamelodi Sundowns set in romping to the championship in the 2006/07 season when they managed a record 11 league victories in a row and three more wins in the Absa Cup to take their tally to 14.

Platinum Stars were the side to end The Brazilians’ run when they triumphed 2-0 in April 2007 and Chiefs will be wary that they face the same opposition in the Telkom Knockout after Ajax.

But even defeat there could still see Chiefs chasing the all-time winning run in league matches if they can get past the Urban Warriors.

Remarkably Stuart Baxter’s side have conceded just two goals in their 14-match winning run to date, with Mpumalanga Black Aces and AmaTuks the only teams to breach their defence. In that time they have scored 26 goals.

The last side to beat Chiefs in domestic football was Black Aces in a shock 1-0 win in April, though they were bundled out of the Nedbank Cup semifinals on penalties by Bidvest Wits after a 1-1 draw on May 3.

Chiefs have won every competitive fixture they have played since.
