Erick Mathoho continues to have a fine renaissance this season at Kaizer Chiefs, as Ernst Middendorp’s side keep up a ferocious pace atop the Absa Premiership. The
Amakhosi centre back not only helped his side keep three clean sheets in five league matches in January, he also bagged two goals, in 3-0 wins over Highlands Park and Cape Town City.
Mathoho has now netted a more-than-useful four times for Chiefs this season, while starting 17 of his side’s 19 league games.
He has also made a return to the Bafana Bafana squad, and is likely to be a part of Molefi Ntseki’s plans in a busy year of Africa Cup of Nations and Fifa World Cup qualifiers. If Chiefs are to go on and win the title this season, it does seem essential that Mathoho stays fit and in form for the run-in towards the May finale. KEYWORD: MATHOHO
