PSL

You Choose The Team Of The Week

Soccer Laduma’s ‘Team of the Week’ is a feature in each and every Soccer Laduma edition, highlighting the top performers from the Premier Soccer League clubs.
 
Selections are based on the performances of players in mid-last week's Absa Premiership action as well as this past weekend’s MTN8 semi-final second leg clashes between Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits, as well as Kaizer Chiefs and Platinum Stars. 
 
In the PSL on Tuesday evening , August 19, Kaizer Chiefs and Ajax Cape Town saw off Bloemfontein Celtic and Polokwane City with 1-0 and 2-1 scorelines respectively, which saw both teams move into first and second place on the PSL standings after three matches.
 
On Wednesday night at Orlando Stadium, Orlando Pirates failed to capitalise on home ground advantage as they were held to a 1-1 draw by AmaZulu, and are yet to register their first win of the season in the league.
 
Absa Premiership defending champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, who have been under severe pressure of late, finally picked up their three points of the new campaign when they clipped the high-flying Moroka Swallows 2-0 at the Dobsonville Stadium.
 
Bidvest Wits earned a hard-fought 1-0 win over Maritzburg United through a solitary strike by Sthembiso Ngcobo to hand the Clever Boys their first win on home soil.
 
Mpumalanga Black Aces are still without a win in three matches since the 2014/15 campaign commenced. AmaZayoni went down 2-0 at home to Dikwena with first half goals from captain, Vuyo Mere and the on-form former Orlando Pirates striker, Ndumiso Mabena.
 
PSL returnees, Chippa United suffered their second successive defeat of the season when they suffered a 2-1 loss at home to the University of Pretoria, with Atusaye Nyondo and Geoffrey Massa on target for AmaTuks, with Bafana Bafana striker, David Zulu finding the consolation for the Chilli Boys.
 
In what has been the biggest comeback so far in the PSL this season, Free State Stars staged a thrilling fight back when they came back from two goals down to beat SuperSport United 3-2. 
 
Following both Soweto giants' two-away goal advantage in their respective MTN8 first leg ties, Ezika Magebhula came out tops in their second-leg home match against the Clever Boys, ousting Gavin Hunt's men 3-1 to advance to a record fifth successive final. The Amakhosi also followed suit by hammering defending champions, Dikwena, 3-0 to also book their final berth and another Soweto derby meeting with their bitter rivals from Parktown, which will staged on September 20.   
 
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 Week’.
 
Every Monday you will get the chance to post your ‘Team of the Week’. See how close you get to the one which will appear in the new Soccer Laduma on Wednesday.
