A turn of events in the title race for the Gauteng Development League as Highlands Park FC were stunned by Randburg AFC, while Kaizer Chiefs FC hammered Joburg City FC by 6-0.

Highlands Park were defeated by 3-1 by Randburg AFC. Randburg AFC who are currently sitting on the 5th position behind the School of Excellence moved closer to the top 4 by defeating the log leaders at Panorama Sports Club.

Kaizer Chiefs on the other hand have bounced back to winning ways after two consecutive wins, putting pressure to the log leaders, Highlands Park FC. Kaizer Chiefs on the road, defeated the struggling Joburg City FC in this year’s run of the GDL.

Kaizer Chiefs are now six points behind Highlands Park FC and with three games left to the end of the season, another loss for Highlands Park could mean a deadly threat posed by Amakhosi, the Phefeni boys.

A title race that started with two teams at the top, Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs, Highlands Park worked its way early in the season and their efforts have been paid. Through its consistency leading to the first half of the season, the Lions of the North became clear favorites widening up the gap at the top. However, in recent events, Kaizer Chiefs who have also dropped points on crucial stages have been catching up with Highlands Park and looking to steal the title and take it to the Naturena Village.

Next encounter for Kaizer Chiefs is Jomo Cosmos at the Rand Stadium. Jomo Cosmos are treading on thin ice sitting at the bottom half of the log just 4 points above Joburg City FC.

Highlands Park FC will face Kathorus Hyper academy at the home ground in Balfour Park. Highlands Park have a good record at home and they will be hoping to use that to their advantage in order to get back to winning ways and extend the gap.
