AFTER the first half of the season, Maritzburg United lie third from bottom, just three points above fellow KwaZulu-Natal strugglers Golden Arrows. They played some decent football towards the end of the year, but were not able to pick up results as they went on a run of five losses in a row before upsetting the applecart and drawing 2-2 against Mamelodi Sundowns in a game they were expected to lose. Here's a look at some of the club’s best and worst performers in the first half of the season, the break-out stars, and those waiting in the wings to claim their chance. The midfielder/striker has shown glimpses this season that he will become a top performer for Maritzburg United. With his well placed lob over Moeneeb Josephs in the 3-1 loss to Wits in their last home game for the year, Sekotlong became the club’s top goalscorer this season with three. And, as The Team of Choice have struggled for goals, he has always looked dangerous in attack. For United to improve in the second half of the season, Clinton Larsen will have to find a player that can complement the former University of Pretoria star in attack. He was unlucky not to be called up to the Bafana squad for the up coming Chan tournament.
