    With both the title and relegation on the line on Saturday, Kaizer Chiefs boss Ernst Middendorp believes that whichever side shows the biggest fighting spirit will come out on top.

    The Absa Premiership title race will reach its climax on Saturday when Chiefs face Baroka and Sundowns take on Black Leopards in their respective final round fixtures.

    Both teams are level on points at the top, while one point separates Leopards and Baroka who are aiming to beat the drop.

    Speaking ahead of the final day Middendorp admitted that with so much on the line the trophy, and relegation, will be decided by whoever wants it more.

    “It’s a very competitive last matchday – we have Baroka in position 15, and Sundowns have to compete with Black Leopards, who are one point above of our opponent Baroka,” the German told the club’s media team.

    “Both teams are sitting on position 14 and 15, and cannot just go into the game and give it away or take it easy. We will see on both locations that the fighting spirit in the respective matches will probably decide what’s coming out in the end of the day.”
