Ekstein & Mothiba shine abroad


Lebogang Mothiba and Pule Ekstein were the shining SA stars abroad at the weekend, reports Prince Sobayeni.


Mokotjo was once again instrumental for Brentford in the middle of the park as they edged Reading 1-0 to move up to 8th place on the log in the English Championship on Saturday as they push to enter the top 6.

Mokotjo remains a regular in their midfield playing 90 minutes for Brentford as they seem rejuvenated. 


Ligendza played 65 minutes before being subbed off for Cardiff City U18s in their narrow 1-0 loss against Coventry City.


Lebogang Mothiba scored for Strasbourg.

It was a great day in the office for Mothiba as the Bafana Bafana international grabbed an assist and scored a goal for Strasbourg as they thrashed Amiens 4-0 in Ligue 1. Bongani Zungu was not in the match day squad for Amiens. 


Tau was a 59th minute substitute for Club Brugge in their 2-0 win over KV Oostende to move 8 points clear at the top of the Belgian league.


Abrahams featured for Westerlo as they suffered a defeat to OH Leuven to let their chance of catching up at the top slip.


Jordan was a second half substitute for HB Koge as they narrowly lost 1-0 against Fremad Amager in the Danish second division to lose their momentum that they had gathered towards the international break.


Ekstein grabbed the headlines again in Azerbaijan as he scored his fourth goal of the season and assisted a further strike to help Sabah FC dispatch Sabali FC 3-1 in the league. Ekstein has cemented his place in the side since moving from the Absa Premiership at the start of the season.


He lasted 55 minutes for Belenenses U23s as they suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat to CD Feirense in the Portuguese U23 league on Friday night. But they remain in the top half of the log after their good start to the season.


FARPost has through its international office discovered another teenager in Kgaogelo Chauke who turns out for Southampton U23s. The 16-year-old central midfielder came on as a 73rd minute substitute for Southampton as they lost 1-0 against Arsenal U23s on Saturday afternoon. We will keep an eye on him.
