Nedbank Cup

Best & Worst: Chiefs v Baroka

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers following Kaizer Chiefs' 1-0 win over Baroka FC in the Nedbank Cup.

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

Best:
 
Hendrick Ekstein: 8/10
 
Ekstein got Amakhosi going forward with pace and was quick on the ball and came close to scoring on a few occasions, eventually scooping the Man of the Match award.
 
Erick Mathoho: 7/10
 
Mathoho was rock solid at the back and he used his aerial advantage effectively for the crucial goal to break the deadlock.
 
Siphiwe Tshabalala: 7/10
 
Shabba was always a threat going forward for Chiefs on the night. He delivered the crucial assist for Mathoho's goal.
 
Talent Chawapiwa: 7/10
 
Chawapiwa was a handful for Chiefs on the right wing. He sent some inviting crosses into the area and he showed a lot of skill on the ball.
 
Gift Motupa: 7/10
 
Motupa was somehow given a lot of space to launch attacks for Baroka and he was unlucky not to have scored when he tried to chip Itumeleng Khune from around 40-yards out.
 
Leonardo Castro: 7/10
 
Castro was a good point of reference for Chiefs in attack but could not get enough openings to test Baroka goalkeeper Ayanda Dlamini.
 
Worst:
 
Matome Kgoetyane: 4/10
 
Kgoetyane was shaky at the back throughout the night. His clearances were not convincing.
 
Robin Ngalande: 4/10
 
Ngalande was surprisingly quiet up front and hardly had a touch inside the Chiefs box.
 
Letladi Madubanya: 4/10
 
Madubanya may have the experience but he was not at his best in the Baroka midfield.
 
Mduduzi Mdantsane: 5/10
 
Mdantsane did not come to the party. He usually makes the team tick but in this match, he was too deep and ineffective as a result.
