Kennedy Mweene - 6/10
In for Denis Onyango, and made a few good saves in the second half too keep the score down, but he was helpless for both of Lobi's goals.
Thapelo Morena - 6/10
The full-back covered his role well, but didn’t provide enough attacking support as he usually does.
Ricardo Nascimento -5/10
Missed a point-blank header at the start, but his poor challenge resulted in a penalty for Lobi, while he was at sixes and sevens for the second goal.
Rivaldo Coetzee -4/10
Let down by poor positioning at times and was caught wanting especially in the second half.
Mosa Lebusa -5/10
Made a decent start to the game with good defensive clearances in the earlier rounds, but didn’t overlap successively per requirement.
Tiyani Mabunda - 6/10
Played too deep in the first half, but began searching forward towards halftime before dropping deep again in the second half.
Hlompho Kekana -6/10
Like his partner, played too deep and didn’t get enough control on the ball, while his final delivery not sufficient too.
Lyle Lakay - 3/10
Not the liveliest of showings by the former Cape Town City, who for large parts of the game was a mere absentee.
Lebohang Maboe -5/10
He missed a good chance to get his first group stage goal following a poor finish from close-range, while he was quiet for most of the second half.
Gaston Sirino -6/10
Sirino showed class in creating the first goal for Laffor to finish at the back-post, although he disappeared from then on.
Anthony Laffor - 7/10
The Liberian were no doubt the club’s best player on the day as he was a major threat up-front with his hard-running nature, but his teammates were sadly not on the same wavelength.
Phakamani Mahlambi – 5/10
Came on for Coetzee midway in the second half as an extra attacking option as Pitso Mosimane threw caution to the wind, but the winger failed to make an impact.
