Denis Onyango might have missed the last two games of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) for Mamelodi Sundowns, his absence through injury has not been felt.
The side has scored 17 goals and let in none on nine league outings, and comfortably sit on top of the 16 team log on 25 points five points clear of Stellenbosch and with a game in hand.
Their latest impressive performance was on Sunday as they demolished Marumo Gallants 4-0, Peter Shalulile grabbed a brace, Themba Zwane and Pavol Safranko got the other.
Reyaad Pieterse was in goal for the second straight game as Onyango continues to nurse his injury.
Sundowns are chasing a record 12th league title and fifth straight title. Out of the nine clean sheets, sundowns have managed this season, Onyango has managed six while Kennedy Mwene has kept the other.
The former Uganda Cranes shot stopper is also chasing the all-time clean sheet of the PSL, he is third overall on 118 behind leader Itumeleng Khune (125) of Kaizer Chiefs and the retired Moeneeb Josephs (119).
Onyango made history last week when he saved five penalties from the seven he saved as Sundowns defeated Capetown City 3-2 on spot kicks to win the MTN8, Sundowns’ first in 14 years.
