Johannesburg -

Boebie Solomons has become the second South African Premiership coaching casualty of a season that is just 25 days old.

The experienced coach was fired on Monday two days after second-from-bottom Polokwane City suffered a fourth consecutive league loss, slumping 3-0 at home to Orlando Pirates.

Cavin Johnson, axed by SuperSport United last Friday following three losses in four games, could replace Solomons.

Recently sacked South Africa coach Gordon Igesund is the media favourite to take over at three-time former champions SuperSport.

Huge prize money in the Premiership and three cup competitions places enormous pressure to succeed on the 16 top-tier coaches.

Another boss in trouble is Craig Rosslee, coach of bottom club AmaZulu, the only Premiership side without a win this season. - Sapa-AFP
