Supersport United Standings
To begin with, the season 2019/2020 hasn’t been the best for supersport utd. At this point, they are in 9th place in the Premier Soccer League. Bidvest Wits jumped on the first place and Kaizer Chiefs are just behind. Polokwane City is in the third place while Mamelodi Sundowns hold the fourth place. Cape Town City, Baroka, Orlando Pirates and Bloem Celtic are all in front of the Supersport.
Last season they ended up in the 6th place which wasn’t so bad as this year. However, they still have the time to fix their standings within this season. The season of 2017/2018 marked their spot on 7th place. In the season 2016/2017, they had much better results and ended in the 5th place. In the season 2015/2016 they were on 8th and 2014/2015 they ended in the 6th place. Hopefully, they will have better results until the end of this season.
