Onyango joint-quickest player to 10 clean sheets.

February 2, 2021

10 – Denis Onyango is the first keeper to reach 10 clean sheets in the #DSTVPrem this season, and the second @Masandawana keeper to reach 10 clean sheets by the half-way stage of a league season in PSL history. Wall.

Sundowns kept 10 clean sheets in the 1st half of the 1996/97 season, but the goalkeeping duties were shared between Roger de Sa and John Tlale in the first 17 games of the season.

In the 30-game PSL era (when we have most reliable data), he equals Calvin Marlin whose 10th clean sheet came in the 15th game back in 2006/7. Onyango’s 10 have come in 14 games, while Marlin’s came in 15.

With 10 clean sheets in the opening 15 games, this Sundowns side are also on course for many records – both for Onyango and the team.

21 – Kaizer Chiefs 2003/4 hold the record for clean sheets by a team over a full season (21), conceding just 11 goals in the league.

That team conceded 5 goals in the opening 24 games, with the record slightly tainted by 6 goals conceded in the last 6 games. Still some record to beat.

17 – Moeneeb Josephs holds the record for most clean sheets by a keeper in a 30-game PSL season, keeping 17 clean sheets in the 2009/10 season for Orlando Pirates. (via:Nick Said)

It was a weekend for goalkeepers, as Richard Ofori made a stunning penalty save in the Soweto derby, while Ronwen William made his 100th consecutive league appearance for Supersport.
