Premier Soccer League Team of the Week

1. Sherywn Naicker (Jomo Cosmos) - The shot stopper made some important saves in their encounter against Orlando Pirates as Cosmos surpassed Eric Tinkler's side with a 1-0 victory. Mbongeni Mzimela came in a close second to be enlisted in this week's XI.

2. Davies Nkausu (Free State Stars) - The defender must be feeling blissful after receiving a lifeline from Stars then days later putting in a strong performance against his former Bloemfontein Celtic side in a Free State derby. Nkausu's Stars walked away with bragging rights.

3. Thulani Hlatshwayo (Bidvest Wits) - Held things together for Wits at the back as they romped Polokwane City.

4. Wayne Arendse (Mamelodi Sundowns) - In the absence of Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Arendse's experience has been valuable to Sundowns back four.

5. Buyani Sali (Jomo Cosmos) - Solid 90-minutes given by Sali as he makes his debut for Sport24's Team of the Week.

6. Joseph Molangoane (Chippa United) - An assist and a goal lands Molangoane the role in midfield after an inspiring display for the Chilli Boys.

7. Keagan Dolly (Mamelodi Sundowns) - The 23-year-old is really coming into his own at Sundowns. His work rate has increased since his move from Ajax Cape Town and he put in another great performance against SuperSport United.

8. Khama Billiat (Mamelodi Sundowns) - Ran circles around SuperSport United's defence and put Gordon Igesund's side under pressure throughout the game. His linking up with Dolly and the forwards has been something beneficial to Sundowns' title cause.

9. Sibusiso Vilakazi (Bidvest Wits) - Not scoring as many goal as he would like but becoming more of a provider and getting two against Polokwane City gets 'Vila' in this week's team.

10. Eleazar Rodgers (Platinum Stars) - A brace against Sundowns and only came on in the second-half. A real threat and difference.

11. James Keene (Bidvest Wits) - Netted a hat-trick against City. The forward seems like the real deal.
