Micho, Billiat win monthly awards


Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs shared the stage at the Absa Premiership monthly awards on Thursday, while a Black Leopards player also earned recognition.

As expected, Pirates were represented through coach Milutin Sredojevic, who snapped up the Coach of the Month award following an impressive run in March and April.

Leopards hitman Mwape Musonda picked up the Player of the Month accolade after netting seven goals in his side's eight games across March and April, despite the team's poor results during that period.

Billiat, meanwhile, was showered with votes for the Goal of the Month gong for March, for his strike in Amakhosi's 1-1 draw against SuperSport United at the Mbombela Stadium.

Musonda was unable to make the trip to Johannesburg ahead of their fixture away to AmaZulu this weekend.
