Cape Town - In what was the best Absa Premiership season to date, Bidvest Wits claimed the league title with a 2-0 victory over Polokwane City on Wednesday.

WRAP: PSL results from Wednesday

This came after Mamelodi Sundowns were held to a 2-2 draw against Maritzburg United in Pretoria.

As recently as last month, no fewer than five teams - Wits, Sundowns, Cape Town City, SuperSport United and Kaizer Chiefs - were all still in the race for the title as the season neared its conclusion.

But it was Wits and Sundowns who had the legs to see it through with just one match day left after Wednesday evening's results.

As the referee blew the final whistle in the Sundowns-Maritzburg clash, Gavin Hunt was brought to tears as he added a fourth league title to his illustrious resume.

The coach previously guided SuperSport United to three Absa Premiership crowns before switching allegiance to the Clever Boys.
