JOHANNESBURG – The battle to remain in the Premiership will go down to the wire after the relegation-haunted sides achieved favourable results yesterday.
Bottom side Maritzburg United beat SuperSport United 3-1 to give themselves a fighting chance in the final match of the season against a Baroka FC outfit that is nowhere near safe.
Many will feel victory was hollow though, as Maritzburg remain bottom of the table as the teams above them also did well.
Chippa United smashed Polokwane City 3-1, Free State Stars drew 1-1 with Kaizer Chiefs, Black Leopards and AmaZulu shared the points after a 1-1 stalemate, and Baroka lost 3-1 to Bidvest Wits.
Fortune Makaringe was the star as he created all the three goals for the ‘Team of Choice’ that should have killed the match off as a contest by halftime, given the numerous opportunities they created before the break.
