Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs will be crowned 2014/15 Absa Premiership title winners according to the majority of Sport24 readers. 

Stuart Baxter's men defeated Ajax Cape Town 1-0 on Sunday to record their 15th straight victory in all competitions, including eight on the trot in the current league campaign.

This run has seen Stuart Baxter's side race out to an incredible 10 point lead at the top of the PSL standings with just eight matches played.

The question was then posed to Sport24's readers:

After a perfect start to the PSL, can anyone stop Kaizer Chiefs from winning the title?

The overwhelming majority of readers who voted in the poll on believe there is just no stopping the Glamour Boys this season.

"Never! Might as well give them the trophy now" was chosen by a staggering 64% of our readers, making the Amakhosi the overwhelming favourites to lift the PSL trophy this season. 

But which team, if any, can stop Chiefs? None other than arch-rivals, Orlando Pirates, according to the 15% of voters who chose "Yes, Orlando Pirates will stop the Glamour Boys" as their number one choice in the poll. 

Pitso Mosimane's expensively assembled Mamelodi Sundowns received only 11% of our readers backing while Ajax Cape Town (6%) and BidVest Wits (4%) are considered very distant threats to the Black and Gold machine this season.
