PSL

You Choose The Team Of The Month

Soccer Laduma’s ‘Team of the Month’ is a feature in each and every Soccer Laduma edition, highlighting the top performers from the Premier Soccer League clubs.
 
With over four weeks of football having gone by, it's time for Soccer Laduma to select the Team of the Month. Selections are based on the performances of players in league and cup fixtures that has taken place in the preceding four weeks of football action.
 
With just over 10 matches remaining to the end of the 2014/15 Absa Premiership campaign, Kaizer Chiefs are still leading the pack, having claimed 14 victories out of 20 matches. Defending champions, Mamelodi Sundowns are hot on the heels of the Amakhosi in second position, followed by Bidvest Wits in third who are currently tied on the same points with 37. The two teams will come head-to-head in a league fixture to determine who can temporarily claim second place. There is a tussle for a top eight finish, with only six points separating eighth and 13th. At the bottom half of the table, battle for relegation is likely to go down to the wire this season, with bottom-dwellers AmaZulu now starting to pull out all stops following their 5-2 thrashing of SuperSport United, whereas the likes of Platinum Stars and Moroka Swallows have struggled to pick up maximum points in their past few matches.    
 
In cup competition, Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns have advanced to the first round of the CAF Champions League following second leg wins in their respective matches. The Amakhosi who beat Botswana champions, Township Rollers 2-1 in their first leg tie at the FNB Stadium, finished the job by claiming a narrow 1-0 win over Mapalastina, with Siyabonga Nkosi netting a brilliant volley to see off their neighbours. Stuart Baxter’s charges will now come up against Moroccan side, Raja Casablanca. The Brazilians thumped St Michel United of the Seychelles 3-0 in their match following a 1-1 draw in the first leg tie. Pitso Mosimane and his side will face a real stern test when they come up against DRC champions, TP Mazembe. 
 
This season's Nedbank Cup has pretty much been dominated by the PSL teams, and has not really produced the 'giant killing' effect witnessed in the past few seasons. The only upset of the competition thus far, has seen the little unknown Natal United stun Chippa United in their last 32 fixture after eliminating the Chilli Boys with a 4-2 penalty shoot out victory. In the KZN Derby, Golden Arrows produced a remarkable 2-1 come-from-behind result against the struggling AmaZulu in their tie.
 
It was not so great at the office for Bidvest Wits who crashed out of the CAF Confederation Cup, after they lost 7-6 on penalties to Swaziland’s Royal Leopards. The Clever Boys had led 3-0 on aggregate after the first leg tie, but somehow managed to squander the three-goal advantage in the Swazi Kingdom, and lost by the same scoreline to Leopards.
 
The team will always be set up in a standard 4-4-2 formation, selected by Soccer Laduma's team of respected journalists.
 
The Soccer Laduma journos are currently in deliberation over this week’s selections. In the meantime we want to hear from you who you think should be in the Soccer Laduma ‘Team of the Month’.
 
Every Monday you will get the chance to post your ‘Team of the Month’. See how close you get to the one which will appear in the new Soccer Laduma on Wednesday.
