An incredible 18 different players registered goals across all competitions, but Themba Zwane took the honours with 10 goals, albeit with just four in the PSL. 

Of Zwane’s 10 goals, three were assisted by Lebohang Maboe and three by Gaston Sirino as the trio dovetailed effectively. Six of his 10 goals came in buildup-focused attacks, whilst two others came from counter attacks.

Lebohang Maboe – 17

Sirino delivered an incredible total of 21 assists, which 11 goals created in the continental competition alone, however six of those were in the qualifying rounds. He also provided eight PSL assists. Kekana, Zwane and Laffor each scored three goals that were created by the Uruguayan playmaker.

Downs have seen 17 different players contribute an assist across the side’s 71 goals. In the first eight months of the season, Mosimane’s side scored just eight set-play goals, but they netted four times from these situations in April and May with crucial goals by Kekana against Golden Arrows and Chippa United from set-plays in the title run-in.

Ahead of next season, Pitso Mosimane has spoken about the need to scout for a genuine number nine to take the scoring burden off his attacking midfield players.
