Hotto overtakes Zwane in FOTS race


The latest poll update in the race for the 2020/21 KICK OFF Footballer of the Season award has seen a shift with Orlando Pirates' Deon Hotto overtaking Mamelodi Sundowns' Themba Zwane.

Hotto has displaced Zwane in second place behind leader Peter Shalulile, who maintain the lion's share of the voting after the second week.

Shalulile has held onto 60 percent of the votes cast thus far, and looks all but secure in pole position for his first ever KO FOTS gong.

It is now a reflection of the Namibians' dominance in the DStv Premiership as the Sundowns and Pirates stars hold the popular ballot amongst readers.

Just behind the top three, Zwane holds a sizeable advantage ahead of the likes of leading league goal scorer Bradley Grobler, Ruzaigh Gamildien and Augustine Mulenga.

In fact, Grobler is rather unpopular despite his dominance on the scoring front for SuperSport United this season, having netted 13 goals in 22 appearances thus far.
