Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs legend Pollen Ndlanya
reckons Amakhosi have every right to be optimistic about their Absa
Premiership title chances this season.
The Naturena outfit have pulled away from the rest of the field and
enjoy a 10-point lead over second-placed SuperSport United and Mamelodi
Sundowns after playing 12 games.
Ndlanya admits that the season is far from over and that Chiefs will
need to keep their momentum going, but believes they have what it takes
to go all the way and bring an end to their four-year trophy drought.
"If you want to win the league, you have to collect points as early
as possible. Chiefs have achieved that so far," said Ndlanya, according
"When it gets tougher in the second round, chances are that they
won't feel it. They are consistent and their strikers are scoring goals.
I see no reason why they can't finish on top of the log.
"Chiefs have the upper hand at this stage. They are playing as a team
and there's also competition among the players. They don't win games
with just the starting line up but they also have players who can come
off the bench and change the complexion of the game. That is depth.
"Obviously, the league is a marathon and Chiefs have to maintain
their form throughout the season. They will also face difficult times
but for now they are consistent and getting the points. I believe they
will keep doing well until the end."
