The Buccaneers secured an emphatic 4-1 victory over SuperSport United as Eric Tinkler makes eight changes to his starting XI.

Kaizer Chiefs snatched a 1-0 win over archrivals Mamelodi Sundowns in the dying seconds of the encounter held at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Bidvest Wits were unable to take advantage of lower ranked Free State Stars as it only took Ea Lla Koto 10 players to defeat The Students (1-0) as Paulus Masehe was given his marching orders.

PSL Team of the Week

1. Shu-Aib Walters (Maritzburg United) – Made crucial saves to help earn his side maximum points against an attacking Ajax Cape Town who controlled most of the game.

2. Siboniso Gaxa (Kaizer Chiefs) - The right-back showed on the night that experience does count in big games and was awarded with the Man of the Match.

3. Sadate Ouro-Akoriko (AmaZulu) – Kept Steve Barker’s side in the game as their attack could not find the back of the net in their goalless result against Platinum Stars.

4. Erik Mathoho (Chiefs) – Has been a standout performer and his partnership with Tefu Mashamaite has won them the PSL title.

5. Thabo Matlaba (Orlando Pirates) – After poor run of games in the PSL the Bafana Bafana left-back looks to be back his old self again.

6. Menzi Masuku (Pirates) – Only his second appearance for the club and a brace of goals to his name. Masuku did excellent on the night as Tinkler rearranged the Bucs starting XI.

7. Hendrik Somaeb (Free State Stars) – In the essence of Stars' season, Somaeb’s goal is the most important one to date as it most certainly secured PSL football next season for the club.

8. Khethokwakhe Masuku (Pirates) – Two assists on the evening against SuperSport, in a game which pushed Pirates into second spot. Masuku also showed that he can slot in with different players who are not usually playing regularly for the team.

9. Khama Billiat (Mamelodi Sundowns) – Billiat had a number of chances on goal and showed that he can be a threat to any defence. He finds space easily in midfield and defence.

10. Puleng Tlolane (Polokwane City) – His goal puts him third on the list of top goal scorers. The forward showed on the night he can cause danger to any defence with the midfielders feeding him the ball.

11. Kermit Erasmus (Pirates) – A solid 80 minutes displayed by the forward and got rewarded with adding his name to the score-sheet.
