Bidvest Wits' Gavin Hunt and Lehlohonolo Majoro have bagged the Absa Premiership coach and player of the month awards for February respectively.
Majoro, who missed a penalty in the shootout against Primeiro de Agosto in the CAF Champions League on Saturday, struggled to find the back of the net in January after joining the Clever Boys from Cape Town City, but he found form in February, as he bagged four goals.
Three of the four goals Majoro scored last month were against his former sides Kaizer Chiefs and City. The goal against Amakhosi, in fact, was his first goal for the Clever Boys which inspired him to then score against Golden Arrows and City.
Hunt, meanwhile, will be happy to scoop the award having endured a difficult campaign. Wits were seen as one of the favourites to lift the title after winning it for the first time last term, but the defence of their crown has been a disaster.
Wits won two matches and drew once last month. After winning the award, Hunt will be hoping he can inspire his side to a top eight finish.
Amakhosi striker Leonardo Castro, meanwhile, won the goal of the month award for January, for his goal on debut against Baroka FC.
