Two Botswana internationals were in action for their clubs in the South African Absa Premiership over the weekend.
BotswanaPremierLeague.com takes a look at how Botswana players plying their trade outside the country performed:
The former Orapa United striker made a second-half appearance for Platinum Stars against Cape Town City in an Absa Premiership match at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Saturday.
Sesinyi replaced Sipho Senne in the 66th minute of the game which was won by City. Ronald Putsche scored in the 82nd minute to hand the Citizens a 1-0 victory.
This was Sesinyi’s fifth league appearance for Dikwena having netted once in the process. Stars will take on Ajax Cape Town away in their next league game on Friday.
The former Uniao Flamengo Santos forward did not make Mamelodi Sundowns’ match-day squad for their Absa Premiership match against Polokwane City on Saturday.
Sundowns suffered a surprise 3-2 defeat to City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium. Ngele, who received his South African permit residence permit late last year, has made one league appearance this season.
Ngele, 27, will be hoping to feature for the Brazilians when they lock horns with Ajax Cape Town away in a league match on Tuesday.
The former Gaborone United playmaker started for Baroka FC in an Absa Premiership match at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.
Kgaswane played the entire match as Bakgaga Ba Mphahlele suffered a 3-1 defeat to the Buccaneers with Mduduzi Mdantsane netting for the visitors.
It was Kgaswane’s 13th league appearance of the season having nettted twice in the process. Baroka’s next league game is against AmaZulu FC at home on Sunday.
The former Gilport Lions midfielder was not included in the Highlands Park match-day squad ahead of their South African National First Division (NFD) match against Super Eagles.
Highlands maintained their lead at the top of the league standings with a 3-0 victory over Eagles at the Goble Park Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Ditsele has made three league appearances for Highlands this season. He will be keen to feature for his side when they host Real Kings in a league game on Saturday.
