Ted relieved others have dropped points 18/02/04
Kaizer Chiefs coach Ted Dumitru is relieved none of their Castle Premiership title-challengers have taken advantage of the Amakhosis break from action.

The Soweto glamour club, who are in a strong position to claim their first league title in 12 years, have not played since the beginning of January because they had seven players away at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Despite their inactivity Chiefs only trail league leaders by seven points having played a full seven fewer games than the Cape Town-based team.

Santos have 40 points from 21 games, Chiefs 33 from 14.

Of the other title contenders, another team who have been inactive over the past month, Ajax Cape Town, have 35 points from 16 starts, with Orlando Pirates (21 games, 35 points), Moroka Swallows (18, 33) and Wits (16, 30) the best placed of the rest.

Chiefs get back into action against Golden Arrows on Wednesday and Dumitru is happy no team has capitalised on the situation, having mostly dropped valuable points in the process.

"They were very generous to us and I must thank them for that," said Dumitru.

"We've been given a bonus by these clubs while we were on leave."

The fiery Romanian-born coach identified Ajax as their main contenders for league honours.

"I believe it's now a two-horse race between Chiefs and Ajax, he said.

I have said a lot about the break in action being very unfair on Chiefs, but that is now all in the past and we are focused on winning all our matches and laying our hands on the league trophy in May.
