Chiefs Player Ratings v Raja
Soccer Laduma rates the individual performances of the Kaizer Chiefs players, following their 1-0 loss to Raja Casablanca.
Here are the ratings:
Brilliant Khuzwayo: 6
Looked nervous once again and was not fully convincing but could not do anything about the goal.
Siboniso Gaxa: 6
Not the best of performances from the Chiefs full-back going forward and his decision-making was poor.
Tefu Mashamaite: 6
Solid for most of the 90 minutes but questions will be asked about the marking for the goal they conceded.
Eric Mathoho: 6
Much like Mashamaite, hardly put a foot wrong but could have done better in the marking for Raja's goal.
Tsepo Masilela: 6
Hardly put a foot wrong defensively but did not get forward as much as he usually does.
Willard Katsande: 6
Went about his job as usual, breaking up attacks but was ineffective when Chiefs were going forward.
Reneilwe Letsholonyane: 6
Another lackluster performance from the Chiefs midfielder, who failed to help his side in the final third.
Siphiwe Tshabalala: 6
Not the best of performance from Tshabalala, as his decision-making in the final third was disappointing.
Mandla Masango: 6
A poor showing from the Chiefs winger, he failed to get beyond his marker and hardly put in any crosses for the forwards.
Bernard Parker: 6
Parker struggled once again and was hardly involved in any of the Chiefs' attacks.
Katlego Mphela: 6
Given a rare start, but squandered two good chances in the second half and was substituted late on.
Hendrick Ekstein: 6
Brought on in the 73rd minute but failed to make an impact.
George Lebese: 6
Brought on in the final 15 minutes but failed to make an impact:
Siphelele Mthembu: 5
Came on in the final 10 minutes and squandered a glorious chance to secure a draw for Chiefs.
