Cape Town – Following a weekend of nail-biting performances and results, Sport24 assembled the PSL Team of the Week.

As the rest of the Premiership played catch-up to Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, the newly crowned champions could take a breather this weekend as they already notched up 28-games while Orlando Pirates shifted their focus to CAF Confederations Cup.

Free State Stars secured their pass for PSL action next season with a convincing 2-0 victory over Chippa United, who now find themselves in danger with Moroka Swallows two points adrift of the Eastern Cape side.

Swallows fought off a stubborn Maritzburg United side to ensure that they can at least advance to the relegation play-offs if they were not to make the 14 safe teams.

AmaZulu lost track of their survival path as they meandered into a 3-1 defeat at the hands of SuperSport United.

Steve Barker's side are now three points shy of the Dube Birds.

And lastly, Mamelodi Sundowns along with Pitso Mosimane was pleased to finish the 90 minutes with a 2-1 win over Platinum Stars after a midweek loss to PSL champions, Kaizer Chiefs.

PSL Team of the Week:

1. Daouda Diakite (Free State Stars) – Kept a clean sheet and made crucial saves to ensure Ea Lla Koto plays in the Premiership next season.

2. Thabo Nthethe (Mamelodi Sundowns) – Put in a sweaty and solid shift as Platinum Stars pushed Brazilians to the final minute.

3. Ashraf Hendricks (Moroka Swallows) – Did enough on the day to help Dube Birds stay alive for PSL taste next season.

4. Clayton Daniels (SuperSport United) – The captain showed midweek why he is a big asset to the club and did so again with his leadership and defensive organisation.

5. Shere Lekgothoane (Moroka Swallows) – The 35-year-olds cross was the most important ball of the 90 minutes as Felix Obada tapped in the match winner.

6. Michael Morton (SuperSport United) – Played an integral part in United’s 3-1 win.

7. Hlomphe Kekana (Mamelodi Sundowns) – Netted a screamer and ensured Sundowns move back to second position on the PSL standings.

8. Bantu Mzwakali (Ajax Cape Town) - With an assist and a goal, the midfielder's 83 minutes should put a smile on Roger de Sa's face.

9. Thuso Phala (SuperSport United) – The attacking prowess was involved in two of the goals with an assist and netting one himself, always great going forward.

10. Aubrey Ngoma (Black Aces) – The midfielder put the pressure on Wits in their 2-2 draw as he opened the scoring. Set the tempo for the rest of the game.

11. Jeremy Brockie (SuperSport United) – An assist and goal gets the New Zealander on the team as a lone striker.
