Premiership

League leaders Kaizer Chiefs have claimed the second quarter of the 2019/20 Absa Premiership Q-Innovation.

Chiefs have won Q2 with 16 points from seven fixtures, their second successive Q-Innovation victory this season.

Going to the previous weekend, Bidvest Wits were the only side that stood a realistic chance of upsetting Chiefs’ party but their 2-0 loss to Cape Town City on Saturday night ended their Q2 aspirations as Chiefs claimed the prize.
