Best

Steven Hoffman: 7/10

He was solid between the sticks for Platinum Stars. He marshalled his defence well and made some good saves when needed.

Enocent Mkhabela: 7/10

He was solid in defence and kept the Chiefs attack at bay with well-timed tackles and his ability to read the game. He also scored his side’s second goal with a good over-head kick.

Solomon Mathe: 8/10

He was good in his attacking midfield role, pushing forward when needed but also defending well. He also scored the game’s opening goal with a powerful header.

Gerald Phiri: 8/10

Phiri was the creative spark in the middle of the park for Platinum Stars. He had a few good shots on goal which were superbly saved by Khune. He also created the first goal with a pin-point cross.

Bongi Ntuli: 7/10

He was a constant threat in attack with his off-the-ball running. He used his pace and skill to cause problems for the Chiefs defence. The Amakhosi defenders had to keep a close eye on him.

Siphiwe Tshabala: 7/10

He was Chiefs’ best player on the night. He was his usual self in attack, often using his skill to beat his marker and create some decent openings for Chiefs.

Worst

Tsepo Masilela: 5/10

He did not have his best game. He did not get forward as he usually does down the left flank and in defence he struggled. It was his poor clearance which resulted in the second goal being scored.

Erick Mathoho: 5/10

He seemed to be lacking the pace to keep up with the Platinum Stars attackers. His communication with his goalkeeper and other defenders was also poor.

George Lebese: 5/10

He had a really quiet game in his attacking midfield role. He was not as threatening as we have become to expect down the flank and he gave the ball away cheaply.

Gustavo Paez: 5/10

He did not pose any threat in attack. He saw very little of the ball and did not cause any problems for the Platinum Stars defence.
