PSL Rankings – November 2012

1 November 2012 The Touchline Expert

Only 2 rounds of ASBA Premiership fixtures were played due to a FIFA international match day.

The cruel edge of One Two Soccer’s PSL Rankings has showed it’s face this week as Mamelodi Sundowns falls 10 places to the bottom of the ladder. The Chloorkop based side has been floundering against even the lowliest of opposition and memories of the hiding they gave Chiefs in the MTN 8 earlier this season have been long forgotten.

Here are the PSL Rankings as we enter November 2012.

Team Trend Log Comments
1 Moroka Swallows +3 4 The Birds picked up a tough away win against Free State Stars and only suffered a penalty shootout loss in the TKO cup
2 Kaizer Chiefs -1 1 2 draws in the league and a loss to Wits in the Telkom Knockout sees the Amakhosi fall down to second place in October
3 Bidvest Wits +7 7 Wits are riding high with 2 wins and a draw in October 2012, including a 3-2 win over Chiefs in the TKO cup
4 Supersport United +1 8 Matsatsantsa were undefeated in October but only registered a win via penalty shootout against Ajax
5 University of Pretoria -3 2 Back-to-back losses against the might of Sundowns and Pirates sees AmaTuks drop three places in the PSL rankings

7 Black Leopards - 11 Lidoda Duvha had 3 tough games (Bucs, SSU, Birds) and managed to escape with 2 draws.
8 Free State Stars - 10 A 4-0 loss to Platinum Stars and a 1-0 loss to Swallows which saw Stars plummet to 10th place in the ABSA Premiership
9 Maritzburg Utd - 6 An easy win against lowly ranked Chippa United and a penalty shoot-out victory over Swallows capped off a decent October
10 Bloemfontein Celtic +3 9 Celtic only managed to win a cup match in October but it was the 0-0 draw away against Chiefs that helped Celtic jump to 10th
11 Platinum Stars - 5 Dikwena have really been a mixed bag, hammering FSS and Downs but the loss to Amazulu really hurt their ranking

13 Ajax Cape Town +2 13 Ajax beat Amazulu and drew against Sundowns to climb up two places in October’s One Two Soccer PSL rankings
14 Golden Arrows +2 12 A win over Chippa took Arrows out of the bottom spot, maybe Mushin Etrugal’s departure was a good thing after all

16 Mamelodi Sundowns -10 14 Sundowns remain very close to the relegation zone but managed a morale boosting victory over Amatuks in the TKO
