Best:
 
Itumeleng Khune: 7/10
 
Khune pulled off a vital save during the 90 minutes, most notably a one-handed save to deny Brockie in the second half. The game would have been finished in regulation time if it wasn't for Khune.
 
Jeremy Brockie: 7/10
 
The Matsatsantsa striker linked up well with the midfield and got on the score-sheet with a sublime volley in the second half. 
 
Eric Mathoho: 6/10
 
The Amakhosi centre-back was a mainstay in defence. He kept the dangerous Brockie quiet for in the first half, and was solid for the rest of the game.
 
Teboho Mokoena: 6.5/10
 
The young midfielder certainly made himself known in the middle of the park and showed a lot of maturity throughout the clash.
 
Ramahlwe Mphahlele: 7/10
 
Rama impressed on the right flank. He was not shy to get forward and did well to score with a towering header late in the second half.
 
Riyaad Pieterse: 6.5/10
 
The SuperSport United goalkeeper had one or two saves to make during the 90 minutes. However, he kept his side in the game by saving Parker's penalty in extra time.
 
Worst:
 
George Lebese: 4/10
 
The Amakhosi fan favourite was flat on the evening and offered nothing in the attack.
 
Thuso Phala: 4/10
 
Phala looked promising in the opening stages, but faded as the game went and failed to trouble the Chiefs full-backs.
 
Bernard Parker: 4/10
 
Parker was anonymous for most of the  game and struggled in the final, while he also missed a crucial penalty in extra time.
 
Simphiwe Tshabalala: 4/10
 
The Chiefs midfielder had a quiet game by his standards, and failed to influence the game going forward.
