Best & Worst: Pirates v Ajax

Best & Worst: Orlando Pirates v Ajax Cape Town

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 11, 2018 12:12 AM

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers, following Orlando Pirates' 2-0 win over Ajax Cape Town.

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

Best:
 
Bernard Morrison: 8/10
 
Morrison scored a brilliant brace on his return to the Pirates line-up. He was a threat from the onset and combined well with Shonga.
 
Justin Shonga: 7/10
 
Shonga showed some good movement and touches in the final third . He also set up Morrison's first goal just before the break.
 
Happy Jele: 7/10
 
Jele was very disciplined and gave nothing away. His experience was pivotal to Pirates keeping a clean sheet.
 
Fagrie Lakay: 6.5/10
 
Lakay was a handful for the Buccaneers defence on the right wing. He created at least two clear-cut chances for Ndoro to finish but he was not clinical enough.
 
Gladwin Shitolo: 7/10
 
Alongside Jele, Shitolo has been a stalwart in the Buccaneers in recent games and he put in another solid showing against Ajax.
 
Thembinkosi Lorch: 6.5/10
 
Lorch supported Morrison and Shonga well upfront with some good movement, as he played a part in the opening goal. 
 
Worst:
 
Siboniso Gaxa: 4/10
 
Gaxa had not kicked a ball in before this match for the whole season and he showed he still lacks match fitness.
 
John Takwara: 4/10
 
Takwara was often overrun in in midfield. His decision making also let him down at times.
 
Siyanda Zwane: 4/10
 
Zwane struggled to deal with Pirates attacks down the left flank. He was also easily shrugged off the ball for Morrison's second goal.
 
Rodrick Kabwe: 4/10
 
Kabwe had no impact in the match whatsoever. He did not bring his “A” game in the encounter.

@bagodloze mfana I didn't see foreigners I saw pirates playing wonderful football and I saw pirates have new starting line that I never think about, well done jele. the is a platform where you can complain about anything that you don't like go to Godli he will call pirates to account for it.

Shonga is a real rocket I like this boy with all my heart,he's marvellous to watch and I like the fact that he's not selfish and hard luck to my favourite young boy in PSL Foster he got a chance to score and missed but he's growing as player, the whole team played very well,our front three is marvellous to watch Memela,Shonga and the great Nyoso Lorch but I'd love to see the combination of Lorch,Shonga and Mulenga this is my dream front three

@bagodloze mfana ....Do you watch European football?!my mighty Barca, Juve, Man City just to name a few coz every team in Europe uses foreigners and they get fruitful results even in MLS they use foreign players...enklek foreign footballers are there in every continent, so it's nothing new,Papic won nothing with those lazy cows..
