Cape Town - AmaZulu claim a vital three points while Kaizer Chiefs lose their first home game to Bidvest Wits.

See who Sport24 selected in the PSL Team of the Week.

AmaZulu pulled off a 2-1 victory in Steve Barker's old playing ground at the University of Pretoria as Bongi Ntuli’s double was enough to push Usuthu up to 15th spot.

Moroka Swallows were handed a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Ajax Cape Town, which means they are anchored at bottom of the log - Usuthu’s goal difference is superior to theirs.

Meanwhile, AmaKhosi were not looking hungry at all to capture three points against a starving Wits side, who got everything tactically right.

PSL Team of the Week:

1. Daouda Diakite (Free State Stars) – Retains his spot after yet another clean sheet between the sticks.

2. Buhle Mkhwanazi (Bidvest Wits) – Made a crucial save following a lob-shot from Mandla Masango over Moeneeb Josephs. The defender had a solid all-round game.

3. Sadate Ouro Akoriko (AmaZulu) – a stern performance by the defender as AmaZulu hang onto PSL status, for now.

4. Thabo Joy Moloi (FS Stars) – The only team to keep a clean sheet this week and Moloi put in a smart shift for Ea Lla Koto.

5. Marc van Heerden (AmaZulu) – Struck the crossbar on two occasions and made a significant contribution to Usuthu’s win.

6. Mzikayise Mashaba (Mamelodi Sundowns) – A brace was enough to earn Mashaba a spot in the side.

7. Keagan Dolly (Ajax Cape Town) – Had a decent 90 minutes against a relegation threatened Swallows getting an assist to his name as well.

8. Khama Billiat (Sundowns) – Always creating chances, whether it is with the ball or not, Billiats runs and inter-play makes him pivotal in Pitso Mosimane’s team.

9. Tlou Segolela (Platinum Stars) – Two assists for the once forgotten Orlando Pirates forward as showed once again what he is capable of with the ball at his feet.

10. Eleazar Rodgers (P. Stars) – A brace for the former Santos striker and a solid forward to have in upfront when on form.

11. Bongi Ntuli (AmaZulu) – His most important two goals of his career so far? Likely! Wonderful performance from the young striker.
