Platinum Stars 0-2 Kaizer Chiefs

Maluleka stole the show with a second half brace against Platinum Stars as AmaKhosi took a giant step toward their first MTN 8 final in six years. The former SuperSport United player has been underfire with the Chiefs fans especially after missing two penalties that saw them surrender their Carling Black Label Cup title to Orlando Pirates at the beginning of this season. However, he'd hope to have made amends with those goals. 

Congratulations to George Maluleka, Goal's 75th South Africa Player of the Week winner!
Honourable Mention

Oupa Manyisa - Orlando Pirates

Manyisa scored twice to salvage a point away to Bloem Celtic last week Wednesday. Those goals took him to the top of the goalscoring charts with three goals from the two league games. He continues to excel in his new role as Bucs number 10.

Kamohelo Mokotjo - FC Twente
 
The 23-year-old Mokotjo needed no second invitation as he opened his FC Twente account in front of his home fans with a 45th minute strike against ADO Den Haag on Saturday. He's proved to be one of the best SA players currently plying their trade in Europe.
Lerato Chabangu - Moroka Swallows 

The dreadlocked attacker was again decisive as he came off the bench to score yet another winner for the Dube Birds against AmaZulu last Wednesday. That was Chabangu's second goal in as many games and his experience has helped Zeca Marques' side to top of the PSL log after just two games.
