At almost the halfway stage, the PSL ‘s bottom three are in dire need of points in their pursuit of survival in the ABSA premiership.
At the weekend Maritzburg United had a glorious opportunity of moving away from the bottom of the psl standings. Maritzburg however spurned that opportunity after allowing Orlando Pirates to rally back from 3 nil down and level the encounter at 3-3.
Maritzburg will however be awake to the need of grabbing maximum points in as many encounters as possible in order to survive. Also struggling to steer away from the bottom 3 is Jomo Cosmos, a side which often blows hot and cold.
University of Pretoria also appear in trouble as they are second from bottom with 9 points. Tuks have been engaged in tough contests recently and Sunday saw them fall to Kaizer Chiefs after conceding a second half penalty. University of Pretoria however have the quality to move away from the bottom 3 and only points will enable them to do so.
Placed on third from bottom with 10 points Cosmos were at the weekend disappointed by a 2-1 loss despite having got off to a flyer when Charlton Mashumba scored as early as the third minute.
