A win over Polokwane City on Wednesday would see the Amakhosi would surge to an unassailable 63 log points, with second-placed Sundowns only able to reach 62 should the win their remaining matches.

The two PSL heavyweights are the only two remaining championship contenders, with other clubs having fallen out of the race after dropping too many points.

While Chiefs have four league games left, Sundowns have five games before the conclusion of the season.

Sundowns' next opponents, Platinum Stars, have in recent years proven to be a bogey side for them. In the last 10 encounters, Dikwena have won five, while Sundowns have won two and drawn three.

Chiefs, meanwhile, have amassed 60 points in 26 matches, and could set a record for biggest points total by Premiership champions.

The current record was set by Sundowns last season when they won the title with 65 points.

Chiefs are on the verge of capturing their fourth title after an impressive campaign that saw them win their first 11 league matches and set a new domestic record of 15 consecutive wins in all competitions.

This season Chiefs were undefeated up until February when they suffered their first league loss in the 2-0 defeat to SuperSport United, 20 games into the campaign.
