Veteran midfielder Michael Morton is not a fan of ending the Absa Premiership season
as it stands without declaring a champion.

He added: "So you can't just ask the guys at the bottom

(Black Leopards) will prefer the things to start again.
"So that’s obviously can’t be in favour of everybody‚

where the guys are currently standing."
