Player Ratings:
 
Itumeleng Khune: 6/10
 
The Chiefs shot-stopper endured a quiet afternoon, but he could have done better for the Acornbush goal.
 
Kgotso Moleko: 6/10
 
Moleko was solid defensively but hardly impressed going forward and was substituted midway through the first half.
 
Erick Mathoho: 6.5/10
 
Went to sleep early in the first when Motha squandered a glorious chance, but was solid overall.
 
Lorenzo Gordinho: 6.5/10
 
Similarly to Mathoho, Gordinho hardly put a foot wrong throughout the 90 minutes and did well to frustrate
 
Sibusiso Khumalo: 4/10
 
Didn't have the best of games at left-back. He struggled against Mudzunga Sidumo. While he was caught ball-watching when Acornbush scored.
 
Willard Katsande: 6/10
 
The Zimbabwean played his usual game in the middle of the park and did well to shield the Chiefs back four.
 
Edmore Chirambadare: 5/10
 
Not the best of games from Chirambadare, as his decision-making in the final third was not up to par to trouble the home side.
 
Siphiwe Tshabalala: 6/10
 
Kept things ticking for Chiefs in the final third, but it was not his best display.
 
George Maluleka: 5/10
 
Not the best of performances by his standards, as he gave away the ball on a few occasions.
 
Joseph Molangoane: 5/10
 
Squandered a big chance in the first half, but had a quiet game on the right flank.
 
Bernard Parker: 7/10
 
Parker looked lively for most of the encounter for Chiefs, while he also picked up two assists in the second half.
 
Substitutes:
 
Gustavo Paez: 7/10
 
The Venezuelan made the perfect impact as a sub, as he bagged two well-taken goals to send Chiefs into the next round.
 
William Twala: 6/10
 
Replaced Moleko after the hour mark, and he played a role in Chiefs' winning goal.
 
Hendrick Ekstein: NA
 
Didn't do too much when he was introduced for the final 15 minutes.
 

Starting XI: Celtic v Mbombela
