SuperSport United captain Fransman: Kaizer Chiefs are far ahead

SuperSport United captain Bevan Fransman admits it will be a huge task to catch up with pace-setting champions Kaizer Chiefs.
Matsatsantsa, in third place on the table, trail the Premiership leaders by 11 points with 11 rounds of fixtures to go.
Mamelodi Sundowns are nine points behind Amakhosi, but with two games in hand.
"Chiefs are quite far away ahead of the rest, so it's going to be a huge task if we are to get them," Fransman says.
"They need to drop points if we are to catch them, but yeah it is not going to be easy."
Fransman is therefore placing great importance on chasing Nedbank Cup honours, with United set to visit neighbours University of Pretoria in the last-32 of the competition on Saturday.
"It is the only silverware which is reachable besides the CAF Confederations Cup. We've got to focus on it."
