Best & Worst: Chippa v Sundowns

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers following Mamelodi Sundowns' 0-0 draw with Chippa United.

Read: Resilient Chippa Frustrate 'Downs

BEST:

Thamsanqa Sangweni: 7/10

The Chippa United skipper put in solid display in the middle of the park, he broke up Sundowns' attacks on numerous occasions with a number of crunching tackles.

Thembinkosi Lorch: 6.5/10

Lorch proved to be the Chilli Boys' biggest attacking threat. Whether on the left or right flank, Lorch made his presence known in the final third.

Hlompho Kekana: 6.5/10

Kekana endured an intense battle with Sangweni, and his presence in the midfield was key to keeping Chippa at bay in the opening half. Although he was lucky not receive a second yellow card in the second half.

Ricardo Nascimento: 6.5/10

The Brazilian defender seems to be settling in well and he put in another fine display in the Sundowns defence, as he kept the in-form Manzini quiet in the first half.

Bongani Kama: 7/10

Kama was one of Chippa's best players on the day. He was composed in possession and did well to frustrate the likes of Khama Billiat and Sibusiso Vilakazi.

Mbulelo Wambi: 7/10

Wambi was another workhorse in the Chippa midfield and along with Sangweni, he helped the Chilli Boys dominate for most of the second half.

WORST:

Sibusiso Vilakazi: 4/10

The new Sundowns man is yet to make his mark at the club, as he had another lackluster performance and offered nothing going forward.

Percy Tau: 4/10

Despite a few sketchy offside calls going against him, the midfielder hardly threatened the Chippa defence and was replaced shortly after the halftime break.

Keagan Dolly: 4/10

The Bafana Bafana international was not his usual self on the day, as he failed trouble both full-backs and spent most of the game coming infield.

Daniel Akpeyi: 4/10

The Nigerian shot-stopper hardly had a save to make, but he was unconvincing under the high ball, having dropped a number of crosses.
