This has been a remarkable turnaround for The Glamour Boys, who ended in ninth position last season, with a total of 39 points from 30 games.

Amakhosi are now just 11 points off their 2018/19 total and have already equalled their nine victories from last year, with just a third of the current campaign having lapsed.

Ernst Middendorp’s charges have so far suffered just one defeat and have been held to a stalemate just once – by SuperSport United back in August.
