Hlompho Kekana and Tendai Ndoro join Lebogang Manyama in the top five players who have secured more wins for their respective teams this season than anyone else.

Chiefs Respond To Bvuma R5000 Wage Claims

As the old adage goes, goals win games, but more often than not a goal can prove to be insignificant in the grander context of a result. For example, scoring a goal in a 3-1 win is far less significant than scoring a goal that swings the game in your favour and gives your team the platform to secure all three points for your team. The pressure is higher and defences work harder. And when it comes to the best match-winners in the game, the Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, the Orlando Pirates striker and the Cape Town City attacking midfielder have been right up there amongst the best in the 2016/17 Absa Premiership season.

Click through the images above to see who are the top five match winners in the Absa Premiership.

Mamelodi Sundowns’  Kekana scored five goals over the course of the season, with all of them deciding the game, including strikes against Golden Arrows (a 3-0 win), Baroka FC (a 1-0 win), Bidvest Wits (a 2-0 win, SuperSport United (a 1-0 win) and Golden Arrows again (a 2-0 win), with the veteran midfielder being the man to score the first goal in all of those games.

Meanwhile, Manyama scored winning goals against Mamelodi Sundowns, Maritzburg United, Bidvest Wits, Highlands Park and Sundowns again, with all of those goals, except for the Highlands Park one, being scored in the second half and being the last goal of the game.

 Ndoro was a match-winner on four occasions, with strikes against Golden Arrows, Ajax Cape Town, Free State Stars and Chippa United all eventually earning three points for his team.

Sundowns Make A Move On Utility Player

The other two players to make up the top five are Golden Arrows’ Knox Mutizwa and SuperSport United’s Thuso Phala, with four match-winners each.

Manyama was the best. He scored twice against Downs at the presence of Kekana, he led CTC from nowhere to somewhere

The best player must not only be judged by goals scored. Some add to that by scoring penalties. A best player must be judged by the contrubutions he is making in each game. The assists, they way he creats scoring opportunities for himself and team mates. The player that attacks and defend as well as taking all set pieces etc. As to where the team ends up on the league table must not be a deciding factor but must be to a lesser extent. My player to be amongst the top 5 or 10 is Shabba. Chiefs have been on position 4 from start to finish and Shabba was very instrumental and was let diwn by finishers.
