Bafana Bafana international Percy Tau finally scored for Club Brugge, while another Bafana player Kamohelo Mokotjo helped Brentford go into a play off spot in a weekend of mixed results for our boys abroad.
Brentford have only lost one game when Mokotjo has started a game and this was the case on Saturday when he played the whole game in the London derby against Fulham as Brentford ran out 2-1 winners on the day with the general controlling the midfield for Brentford in a very tough encounter. This result moves Brentford to 4th on the table which means they are in pole position for a play off spot should they keep doing well in the league.
The SA attacker is probably the player of the weekend as the striker ended his drought in great style with a goal and an assist on Sunday night as Club Brugge won 3-0 against new boys KV Mechelen in the Jupiler league. Tau has scored four in all competitions this season, accompanied by 7 assists.
