Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits are the early pace-setters in the race for the Absa Premiership Q-Innovation Q4 prize.
The three clubs are amongst the form teams in the country and unsurprisingly have managed two wins and a draw from the three matches played thus far for a total of seven points each.
The Brazilians, winners of Q2 and Q3, are top of the overall league standings, with Q1 winners the Students currently four points behind them.
The Buccaneers, meanwhile, have been one of the stand-out teams in the country over the past two months with their form driving them to within a win of breaking into the top five.
Kaizer Chiefs, who have had plenty of recent questions about their form, are not far behind the top three in Q4 after managing one win and two draws, while a host of clubs are a further point back with a win, a draw and a loss.
The bottom makes for interesting reading as Platinum Stars, seen as title contenders earlier in the season, occupy last place. This despite Dikwena still lying fourth on the overall standings.
Cavin Johnson’s men have lost two and drawn one of their last three matches.
The league’s overall bottom side, Maritzburg United, are 13th thanks to one win and two defeats.
The winner of each quarter is rewarded with a R1.5 million prize.
