The Absa Premiership 2016/17 is nearing its end and things are getting tense as the battle to avoid the drop heats up as the run-in approaches.
Only 6 points. That is all there is left to play for most of the teams battling to avoid the PSL drop. All have played 28 so far.
With 2 games left to go, the run-in is officially upon us. It is time for bums to begin squeaking, as the relegation dogfight intensifies.
Who will stay up, and who will fall through the trapdoor? Baroka, Highlands Park, Free State Stars and Bloem Celtic occupy the bottom four at present – can any of them survive?
Baroka are bottom of the log with 24 points from 28 games, with Chippa occupying 15th spot while Highlands are 14th and Stars and Celtic on 13th and 12th respectively.
Fight of survival in top flight
Baroka FC will have to use their home advantage against Highlands in relegation battle when they lock horns in a bitter fight for Absa premiership survival at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday.
Highlands Park will be banking on their previous win when they visit Baroka FC in the Absa Premiership on Wednesday night at the New Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.
The Lions of the North are motivated following their hard fought 1-0 win over Chippa United at Makhulong Stadium last Friday.
