The Amakhosi shot-stopper is certainly in line for the league’s Goalkeeper of the Season award this year despite his club’s lack of silverware and his 76 saves across the length of the season make it hard to argue the fact that he’s in the running.
 
Khune also had the highest percentage in the league of any shot-stopper with over 900 minutes under his belt, saving 80.9% of the shots that he faced while between the posts for the Glamour Boys.
 
Another player who had a busy season was Cape Town City’s Shuaib Walters, with the 35-year old making 75 saves with a save percentage of 74.3%. Following Khune and Walters were Chigova of Polokwane City (72), Highlands Park’s Tapuwa Kapini (71) and Baroka stopper, Oscarine Masuluke (67). Bidvest Wits' Darren Keet, meanwhile, saved 75% of the 79 shots he faced. 
 
 
Orlando Pirates’ Brighton Mhlongo was top with regards to saves per 90 minutes (3.38) and Denis Onyango played a big role for Mamelodi Sundowns with his record of conceding just 0.7 goals per game.
 
However, despite all the above stats, it was Bloemfontein Celtic’s Patrick Tignyemb that picked up the most clean sheets, bagging 12 in the season to take him two above Keet, Chigova and Khune with 10.

I believe golie for small teams with poor defence should be busier (Baroka,Polokwane,Highlands,CT C ) as for Khune it shows that chimpanzees defence is very poor as well

This Shows how leaky our defense is , keepers of teams with best defensive records dont appear in this list cause the team was organised defensively and the keeper didn't get tested frequently
