Premier Soccer League Team of the Week 18

1. Moeneeb Josephs (Bidvest Wits) - 'Slimkat' is back in the fold for Wits and put on quite a showing for The Students.

2. Thulani Hlatshwayo (Bidvest Wits) - 'Tyson' keeps his place in the squad this week as Wits leak no goals. 

3. Ntsikelelo Nyauza (Orlando Pirates) - Lorenzo Gordinho was close to making the side's XI but Chiefs conceded more goals than expected. Nyauza has worked hard for his spot in Pirates defence and continues to sweat it out while Pirates have important players out through injury.

4. Siyabonga Zulu (Platinum Stars) - The defender is returns to the starting XI as he assisted Sibusiso Msomi's goal and made sure Dikwena hold firmly onto a clean sheet.

5. Thabo Matlaba (Orlando Pirates) - The Bucs skipper scored the only goal of the evening and had some competition this week from Wits' S'fiso Hlanti, who too netted The Students only goal to earn them three points. 

6. Asavela Mbekile (Mamelodi Sundowns) - Debutant for the midfielder in 'team of the week' and deservedly so. His run to assist Dolly was fantastic athleticism shown by the 29-year-old.

7. Travis Graham (Ajax Cape Town) - Teeing up Nxumalo to put the final nail in the coffin against SuperSport United.  

8. Khama Billiat (Mamelodi Sundowns) - Surely he is on his way to win the golden boot? But he has some catching up to do... Scored his 7th goal and is now second on the scorers list, Collins Mbesuma remains first with eleven goals.

9. Keagan Dolly (Mamelodi Sundowns) - Returns to the starting XI after being left out but the former Urban Warrior showed what he is all about 

10. Tlou Segolela (Platinum Stars) - It's been a while since Tlou has netted a goal for Dikena, but his performance against Polokwane City showed that when fit and on form he can really hurt a defence.

11. Prince Nxumalo (Ajax Cape Town) - Back-to-back goals for the striker. Seems his old self again, fit and scoring.
