The likes of Dumsani Zuma – who went on to score both goals in the 2-0 victory – as well as Philani Zulu, Kgotso Moleko and Siyabonga Ngezana were given a starting berth for the first time in 2019/20, though all had varying report cards.

Meanwhile, others such as Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Kabelo Mahlasela made rare appearances in the matchday squad and Bruce Bvuma was given the nod to start for the first time since August.

Do you think anyone staked their claim for a more regular spot last night?
