Pirates Player Ratings v URA

Soccer Laduma player rates the individual performances of the Orlando Pirates players, following their 2-1 win over URA.
 
Here are the ratings:
 
Brighton Mhlongo: 6
 
Was hardly tested throughout the 90 minutes and could do nothing about URA's goal.
 
Happy Jele: 5
 
Was solid for large parts but hardly got forward and ended up scoring an own goal in the dying minutes.
 
Rooi Mahamutsa: 7
 
Started the game with a bang by scoring a sublime goal and was solid throughout the 90 minutes.
 
Siyabonga Sangweni: 6
 
Put in a solid showing throughout and hardly put a foot wrong, while he also frustrated the URA attackers.
 
Thabo Matlaba: 6
 
Not the usual game, which most expect to see from Matlaba, he did well defensively but hardly added to the Pirates attack.
 
Mpho Makola: 6
 
It was a quiet game for Makola, hardly impacted the side going forward and was eventually substituted in the second half through injury.
 
Lehlohonolo Masalesa: 6
 
Given a rare start by Eric Tinkler and managed to hold his in the holding midfield role.
 
Oupa Manyisa: 7
 
The Orlando Pirates skipper was lively when in possession of the ball and picked up two assists, by teeing up Mahamutsa and Majoro.
 
Sifiso Myeni: 6
 
Not the best of showings from Myeni and only showed glimpses of what he can do.
 
Kermit Erasmus: 6
 
Another frustrating outing for Erasmus, his efforts at goal failed to trouble the URA goalkeeper and his movement was not the best.
 
Lennox Bacela: 6
 
Much like Erasmus, hardly had any services to feed on and was eventually substituted midway through the second half.
 
Substitutes:
 
Thandani Ntshumayelo: 6
 
Replaced Bacela midway through the first half, as Tinkler was looking to bulk up the midfield and was effective in helping Pirates hold on for the win.
 
Thabo Rakhale: 6
 
Rakhale was just what Pirates needed, as the tempo of their play had slowed down, although he did have a couple poor efforts at goal.
 
Lehlohonolo Majoro: 7
 
Proved to be an inspired substitution for Pirates, as Majoro's sublime effort proved to the match winner.
