The final day of the 2014-2015 Absa Premiership season takes place tomorrow.
Either Moroka Swallows or AmaZulu will be relegated from the Premiership league tomorrow. But even Chippa United could still be drawn into the relegation battle, if they lose heavily and end up in the play-offs spot.
But the odds are stacked against Swallows to drop to the National First Division after tomorrow’s last round of matches.
Swallows need a miracle and a prayer to survive the drop because they have to beat Bloemfontein Celtic and hope AmaZulu drop points against Maritzburg United in a KwaZulu-Natal derby tomorrow.
Both Swallows and AmaZulu are on 27 points.
Chippa – who are three points above both Swallows and Usuthu – host champions Kaizer Chiefs and the Port Elizabeth-based side need a point to guarantee their safety.
Chippa could also go down if they lose by a heavy margin – three or more goals – and Swallows win by more than three goals.
Until recently, AmaZulu were a sure bet to go down but their resurgent under Steve Barker has seen them moving above Swallows going into the last round of matches. A win over Maritzburg will see Usuthu avoiding the automatic drop.
Elsewhere, with the top two already decided, the battle is for the third spot – which is a passage to the CAF Confederation Cup next year.
Third-placed Orlando Pirates will be out to retain their position when they visit Ajax Cape Town while Bidvest Wits welcome Platinum Stars.
Both Pirates and Wits are on 49 points and whoever slips up will miss out on a chance to represent the country in the continental tournament.
