Cape Town - Despite leading the league after a brilliant start to the season, "fans" of Kaizer Chiefs are turning on their team.
The goals have seemingly dried up as Kaizer Chiefs go in search of their 12th PSL title and their first since the 2012/13 season.
In recent matches, Stuart Baxter's side has struggled to a dull Soweto Derby draw, a loss away ay Maritzburg United and a home defeat to Raja Casablanca, albeit in the CAF Champions league. These performances have fans worried about their side's form in the business end of the season.
"Fans" of the club are taking to social media to air their concerns:
Chiefs maintain an 8 point lead over defending champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, who have a game in hand over the Glamour Boys.
Ahead of the match against Moroka Swallows on Wednesday, coach Stuart Baxter is focusing on his club's concerns and not the plight of his manager-less opponents.
“We will put aside everything and focus on the match,” Baxter told Kaizer Chiefs website.
“We will not be looking at their internal affairs.”
“See also Manchester City in the English Premiership. They lost to Burnley. Not many people saw that coming. It is towards the end of the league season and everybody is playing for something. It is getting tougher and tougher.”
Soweto rivals Moroka Swallows and Kaizer Chiefs meet in a top vs bottom PSL clash at the Dobsonville Stadium. Kick-off is set for 19:30.
