Siphelele Ntshangase: 7.5/10
Ntshangase was the star man in the middle of the park, playing a key role in all of Chiefs' attacks. He also laid on the pass for Castro's goal.
Daniel Cardoso: 7/10
Cardoso was rocked solid in the heart of the Chiefs defence throughout the clash as he kept Rodgers quiet.
Dumisani Zuma: 7/10
Zuma made an impressive return to the Chiefs side.  He offered good width down the left flank and he also capped his display with a fine goal.
Ramahlwe Mphahlele: 7.5/10
The Chiefs right-back was a constant threat on the right flank going forward, while being defensively sound throughout the night.
Virgil Vries: 7/10
In the absence of Khune, Vries proved to be the worthy replacement. He commanded his box throughout and also showed off some his distribution skills.
Leonardo Castro: 7/10
The Colombian striker was a threat thoughout the encounter. His link up play with the midfielder was impressive and he took his goal superbly.
Goodman Dlamini: 4/10

Dlamini had a very quiet performance for Stars as he failed to offer the visitors anything going forward throughout the clash.
Yusuf Jappie: 4/10
The winger could hardly get into the game down the right flank and made no impact in the final third.
Eleazar Rodgers: 4/10
It proved to be a frustrating evening for the veteran striker as he failed to cause in trouble in the Chiefs box.
Rooi Mahamutsa: 4/10
A lot of Chiefs' attacks, including the two goals, came through the middle and the communication between Mahamutsa and his defence was off at times.
