Kaizer Chiefs Middendorp versus Baxter winning season

For five years the mighty Kaizer Chiefs have been lying dormant waiting to rise again and lift the Premier Soccer League title. In the 2019/20 season after playing just 15 games Kaizer Chiefs FC are top of the log table and lead second placed Mamelodi Sundowns by 4 points. Coach Middendorp has changed the way Kaizer Chiefs plays and the team is offensively looking very good and scoring from set pieces , a mark of a good team! However, they have been conceding silly goals of late costing them crucial points. Chiefs last won the Premier Soccer League (PSL) in 2014/15 season. One thing to admire from the winning team of 2014/15 was their defense, shepherded by brilliant Stuart Baxter . Coach Stuart Baxter's team only conceded 14 goals the entire season. Remarkably Meddendorp's team has conceded 13 goals in 15 games. This clearly shows signs of a leaking defense and casts doubts in the minds of Amakhosi fans if their team will be able to win the league with 15 games remaining.
