PEREN­NIAL PRES­ENCE

Kick Off - - FEATURE -

Deon Hotto was only sec­ond to former Bloem­fontein Celtic team­mate Pa­trick Tignyemb on the list of play­ers who piled up the most games across all com­pe­ti­tions in the PSL last sea­son. While Hotto missed two games – both in the Ned­bank Cup – Tignyemb missed just one, also in the Ned­bank Cup win over Richards Bay, as fel­low glove­man Ka­belo Dambe was handed a rare chance. Just like Hotto, Tignyemb also played in ev­ery league match across the sea­son, yet for a goal­keeper, this is some­what less im­pres­sive in his spe­cialised po­si­tion. Be­sides miss­ing the two Ned­bank Cup games, Hotto fea­tured in all four Telkom Knock­out clashes as Si­welele ne­go­ti­ated their way to the fi­nal be­fore com­ing un­stuck against Bid­vest Wits. Other play­ers who notched up 30 league ap­pear­ances last sea­son in­clude Free State Stars goal­keeper Badra Ali San­gare, Daniel Car­doso and former Kaizer Chiefs team­mate Siphiwe Tsha­bal­ala as well as ex-Mamelodi Sundowns star Percy Tau, who is now play­ing in Bel­gium.
