2018-04-26 06:45

Cape Town - Relegation-threatened Absa Premiership clubs are looking to avoid the drop when the season draws to a close on Saturday, May 12.

SuperSport United and Ajax Cape Town and Platinum Stars are all in danger of being relegated.

These teams will need as many points off their final league games in order to remain in South Africa's top-flight division.

The team who finishes 16th is directly demoted to the National First Division (NFD) while the club in 15th position still has a chance of remaining in the Premiership.

The 15th placed team will compete in PSL Promotion/Relegation Playoff tournament along with two teams seeking promotion from the NFD.

SUPERSPORT UNITED (14th, 28 games, 32 points)

Wednesday, May 9 v Chippa United (away)

Saturday, May 12 v Baroka FC (home)

AJAX CAPE TOWN (15th, 28 games, 31 points)

Wednesday, May 9 v Mamelodi Sundowns (away)
