The Students are at the summit of the PSL log, having recorded four wins in their opening five games in the 2015/16 league campaign.

With Coach Mashaba having announced his latest Bafana squad for international friendly games against Costa Rica and Honduras, the Wits quartet of Thulani Hlatshwayo, Siyabonga Nhlapo, Jabulani Shongwe and Sibusiso Vilakazi have all been called up to the national team.

The four players and their club teammate, Phumalani Ntshangase, were all also part of the recent national set-up that played against Mauritania and Senegal, although Hlatshwayo was later withdrawn from the team owing to an injury.   

Although four Orlando Pirates players have also received call-ups to the national team, in Oupa Manyisa, Thabo Matlaba, Mpho Makola and Thamsanqa Gabuza, Mnayisa is excepted to be withdrawn from the squad which would leave Bucs with three in Mashaba’s squad.

Manyisa is likely to be withdrawn from the squad after he picked up an ankle injury in a league game for Pirates against Polokwane City on Tuesday evening. 

Kaizer Chiefs have three players called up to the latest Bafana squad. They are Itumeleng Khune, Mulomowandau Mathoho and George Lebese.

The SuperSport United trio include are Ronwen Williams, Clayton Daniels and Dean Furman.
