Kaizer Chiefs clinched the 2014-2015 Absa Premiership title in emphatic fashion as they cruised to a 4-1 victory over Polokwane City at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday night.

Chiefs led the PSL table from day one, cruising to a 19-match unbeaten streak before losing a little focus in the new year. But with three games left to play, and two points shy of the Absa Premiership points record, Chiefs will be looking to add salt into the wounds of Sundowns by taking the trophy and their record.

Coach Stuart Baxter was delighted to have bagged the PSL title with three games to spare but aims to finish the season on a high, reported KickOff.

“I’m delighted for the players and delighted for everybody connected to the football club but the champagne will be on ice, well at least for the players – that doesn’t apply to the staff,” said Baxter

“But we’ll try and keep ourselves on an even keel and make sure we finish off the season in the best possible way.”

The Naturena club opened the scoring in the 27th minute through George Lebese with Bernard Parker making it 2-0 at half-time. In the second half Polokwane City got one back through a curving Rendani Ndou strike, but it was all about Amakhosi as man-of-the-match Matthew Rusike scored a brace.

This is The Glamour boys’ 68th title of their 45-year existence and their fourth league title. They now sit tied in second place with Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates, two titles behind Mamelodi Sundowns for most titles.

The trophy will be handed to Kaizer Chiefs on the last day of the Absa Premiership season on May 9 in Port Elizabeth.
