Babina Noko made history by winning both awards for the first time. This comes as no surprise as they’ve been one of the best-performing teams. Mntambo missed most of the season due to a career-threatening injury but managed to bounce back in spectacular fashion, creating and scoring goals for his club, marking his return to the field in style. Orlando Pirates have also been enjoying a good run, notwithstanding their inconsistency, collecting points and reaching the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup under coach Jose Riveiro.

A number of their players have been impressive, putting up great performances and scoring a lot of goals. The Buccaneers find themselves third on the log, behind Mamelodi Sundowns and Stellenbosch FC. They could have been in a much better position had they showed more consistency. Mamelodi Sundowns have had to switch their focus between the domestic league, CAF Champions League, and the Nedbank Cup in the past month.

The hectic schedule is starting to show on coach Rulani Mokwena’s team, with the side scoring a mere eight goals in their last eight fixtures, which is uncharacteristic for them. Stellies have been going about their business quietly, collecting points and reaching the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup without much noise. Coach Steve Barker’s charges have played more than 20 games without tasting defeat, having already won the Carling Knockout. They will be looking to secure their second spot on the log and reach their second cup final in one season.

Players like Lucas Ribeiro Costa, Linda Mntambo, Devin Titus, Tshegofatso Mabasa, Patrick Maswanganyi, Eva Nga, and Teboho Mokoena have raised their hand for recognition with their performances for their respective clubs. With that brief summary of the month’s performances, select your Team of the Month and compare it to the official Soccer Laduma selection.
