The Best & Worst Of Chiefs Tonight

Kaizer Chiefs began 2015 with a lackluster 0-0 draw against Bloemfontein Celtic, but who were the three best and worst Chiefs players on the night.
 
Chiefs struggled to create chances from open play and only looked like scoring from a set-piece, but could that be down to the absence of George Lebese down the left flank?
 
The likes of Siphiwe Tshabalala and Mandla Masango had no joy down the respective flanks and both were substituted in the second half, as Chiefs left the Free State with a point. 
 
The Three Best Players:
 
Tefu Mashamaite: The Chiefs captain was a rock in the heart of the AmaKhosi defence, winning most of his aerial duels and did well to frustrate the Bloem Celtic attack.
 
Eric Mathoho: Another player who continues to shine in the Black and Gold jersey, made a fine last ditch challenge on Lerato Lamola in the first half and nearly secured a late winner.
 
Brilliant Khuzwayo: With Itumeleng Khune returning from injury, many believed Khuzwayo would be dropped but Baxter stuck with the latter and it pay off against Celtic, as Khuzwayo pulled off a couple saves to help Chiefs keep a clean sheet.
 
The Three Worst Players:
 
Mandla Masango: Struggled to create openings for the Bernard Parker and was often let down by his final ball.
 
George Maluleka: Drafted back into the starting line-up but failed to reproduce his form the first half of the campaign.
 
Siphiwe Tshabalala: Probably only starting due to the Lebese's absence, but failed to make any impact in the final third from open play.
