Best & Worst: Kaizer Chiefs v Baroka

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 01, 2018 10:46 AM

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.

Ekstein wasn't playing well in the past was because you can't play Ekstein in without another attacking midfield. Komphela must continue with tactics He used against Baroka. Zuma and Ntshangase will also fit in perfect. The reason chiefs drew so many games was cause of the defensive structure of Komphela
