The Best & Worst Of Chiefs Vs Rollers

Kaizer Chiefs left it late against Township Rollers on Saturday night, but have they done enough to suggest they can progress in the CAF Champions League?
 
Without a proper number nine, Stuart Baxter deployed Matthew Rusike up front, which left me surprised... Nonetheless, he came up with the goods with a nice finish. Maybe Baxter could use him there more often.
 
The Botswana side leveled matters after the Chiefs defence was caught napping, and the boys didn't look like breaking down Rollers, until our Captain Fantastic, Tefu Mashamaite, popped up in stoppage time.
 
The Three Best Performers On The Night:
 
Tefu Mashamaite - He lead by example as he has done so many times this season with steady performance at the back alongside Eric Mathoho. He popped up with a crucial winner in stoppage time. 
 
Willard Katsande - As usual, Katsande goes about his job quietly, but is certainly one of the most effective in the team. The Zimbabwean was key in breaking down Rollers' counter attacks in the second half.
 
Matthew Rusike - Took his goal well but could have had a couple more in the first half and could be a possible candidate to play up front on a more regular basis with his pace.
 
Three Who Need To Do Better:
 
Reneilwe Letsholonyane - It was not one of Yeye's best performances for us this season... Could he be burning out from being on duty with Bafana Bafana as well? I think so.
 
Siphiwe Tshabalala - Another poor showing from the attacking midfielder, who disappeared for large parts of the game. 
 
Geroge Lebese - The Chiefs winger could be distracted by off-field matters, as he put in a below-par showing against Rollers down the left flank.
 
Who were your best and worst performers on the night?
