Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see who were the best and worst on the day.

Best:
 
Abbubakar Mobara: 8/10
 
Mobara was superb in the heart of the Pirates defence and ge scored the goal that secured the win.
 
Thabo Rakhale: 7/10
 
Rakhae was a real threat down the flanks and carve out a couple chances. He also did well to track back throughout the game.
 
Oupa Manyisa: 7/10
 
The Buccaneers captain played a little deeper than usual but he was very influential on the day.
 
Thabo Matlaba: 6.5/10
 
The Pirates full-back put in a solid display on both ends of the pitch, most notably in defence where frustrated Mahachi.
 
Issa Sarr : 7/10
 
The Senegalese was solid in the midfield on the day. He put in a couple vital challenges and did well to protect the back four.
 
Happy Jele: 7/10
 
Much like Mobara, Jele hardly put a foot wrong and did well to frustrate the likes of Mutizwa and Lamola.
 
Worst:
 
Wayde Jooste: 4/10
 
Abafana Bes'thende winger was starved off the ball and had no impact on the game. 
 
Sandile Dlamini: 4/10
 
Dlamini conceded too many fouls in dangerous areas and couldn't help out going forward.
 
Knox Mutizwa: 4/10
 
The striker had a very quiet afternoon as he was marked out of the game by Mobara and Jele.
 
Dove Wome: 4/10
 
Dove showed a couple good touches in the early stages but did not have a big impact for most of the match.
