“Moving into the midfield, Musa Nyatama and Ben Motshwari check-in with the highest successful tackle percentage (62.3%) and the most successful tackles, respectively. Everyone’s favourite attacking trio – Pule, Shonga and Lorch – make an entrance into the competition again this month, and each for different reasons. Thembinkosi Lorch who had a goal and an assist achieved the highest shot accuracy of 62.5% and the most final third receptions.

“Justin Shonga, who also clocks in a goal and an assist, makes the cut with teammate Vincent Pule for consistent performances in spearheading the team’s attack. Not shying away from the box, both forwards had the highest number of attempts at goal during the month,” confirmed Bucs.
