Ratings:

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.
 
Substitutes:
 
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.
