Can Anyone Stop Ajax? 

With six games to go, Ajax are seven points clear of second-placed Swallows and they look on course to gain automatic promotion while the Dube Birds and Uthongathi currently find themselves in promotional play off spots. Tshakhuma, Free State Stars and the rookies in JDR Stars form part of the chasing pack and they all have a realistic chance to finish in the top three.
Tshakhuma are rumoured to be on sale as their owner is looking to purchase Bidvest Wits’ status. Most teams are now having a free hit season as they neither have a chance to fight for PSL promotion nor in danger of being relegated.

The Dreaded Third Tier Relegation Trouble 

Royal Eagles who have struggled since Shawn Mpisane left the team bought Real Kings are rooted to the foot of the table, having collected 18 points in 24 games. The KZN outfit will need something close to a miracle to survive relegation.

Jomo Cosmos are also in the relegation zone but they’re in a much better position with only a single point separating them from Mbombela United who are just above the relegation zone. Ezenkosi can also leapfrog TS Sporting who are two points above them. Jomo Sono has struggled to pay players their salaries over the last few months and that might be one of the reasons for their poor performances of late.
