Macuphu has been enjoying great form with United since he arrived at the club in January on a loan deal from Bidvest Wits.
The former Tshwane University of Technology student scored a very important goal for Matsatsantsa to seal a 1-0 win over Free State Stars at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday to put the club into contention for the league title.
"He has been an important player for us since January," said Tembo after watching his team collect three points against Ea Lla Koto.
"He has changed the way we plays. Not only with his goals but his overall contribution to our play has been very instrumental. He can hold the ball and works very hard off the ball. I am very happy with his performance and contribution to the team."
Macuphu is expected to continue his fine form when SuperSport host Kaizer Chiefs in a league match at Mbombela Stadium on Friday.
