NAMIBIA's professional football players in South Africa mostly had disappointing results in Premier Soccer League (PSL) matches over the weekend.
Of Namibia's 12 players currently on the books of PSL teams, only three were in action, while only one player, Deon Hotto, was part of a winning team in the PSL.
Hotto played the full match for his team, Bloemfontein Celtic and helped them to a 2-0 home victory against Chippa United.
Chippa had a player sent off in the first half for a head butt, but Celtic took a while to break down their defence, before two late goals by Muse Nyatama secured them there three points.
It was Celtic's first win of the year and only fourth of the season, and provides them welcome relief as they move out of the relegation zone and up to 12th position on 18 points, while Chippa United are eighth on 20 points.
Kaizer Chiefs, meanwhile, went to the top of the log after beating Highlands Park 1-0 on Saturday.
Namibia's Peter Shalulile and Chris Katjiukua both played the full match for Highlands, with Shalulile coming close with an acrobatic early effort, but they ended on the losing side as Chiefs secured the win through a first half header by Lorenzo Gordinho.
The result sees Chiefs moving to the top of the log on 33 points, while Highlands Park are struggling in the relegation zone, in second last position on 14 points.
