Before the COVID-19 enforced break, Chiefs were runaway leaders at the top of the ABSA Premiership, but following the restart, Amakhosi have picked up just five points out of a possible 15 to allow defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns close up the gap.

Our thoughts are with our former goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi.
