Amakhosi have a 10-point lead at the top and Ndlanya believes that Chiefs can maintain the gap until May 2020.

“If you want to win the league, you have to collect points as early as possible. Chiefs have achieved that so far,” Ndlanya told IOL.

“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,” Ndlanya added.

“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.”

Ndlanya believes Sundowns will always be challengers and warned Chiefs not to forget about the Brazilians.

“Obviously you can’t rule Sundowns out. They are a good team with a great passing game. But the opposition knows how to frustrate Sundowns. They just sit back and play on counter-attack. Right now they are not convincing. They are struggling and they are too predictable,” Ndlanya elaborated.
