Best & Worst: Chiefs v Wits

Absa Premiership Best & Worst, Kaizer Chiefs v Bidvest Wits, 7 August 2018

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 07, 2018 11:52 PM

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers, following Bidvest Wits' 3-1 win over Kaizer Chiefs in an Absa Premiership match on Tuesday night.

BEST

Ramahlwe Mphahlele: 7/10

The Chiefs right-back performed his duties well on the night. He was good in defence and also got forward down the flanks to assist in attack. He produced numerous good crosses into the box for his team’s strikers.

Khama Billiat: 6.5/10

The attacking midfielder was at his best with his pace and skill causing the Wits defence numerous problems. He was a constant threat in attack and if he wasn’t shooting for goal, he was providing great through balls for his teammates. He created his side’s opening goal with a pin-point free-kick into the box for Castro.

Leonardo Castro: 7/10

The Chiefs striker was the target man in attack and often held up the ball for his teammates, using his strength and passing ability to create space for his teammates. He was also a threat in attack, especially aerially which saw him scoring for Chiefs with a fine header at a set-piece.

Thulani Hlatshwayo: 7/10

The Wits skipper was solid in his defensive role for the most part and was a big asset going forward. He often got down the right flank and provided some decent crosses into the box. He also had a few long-range shots on goal which went narrowly wide.

Deon Hotto: 8/10

The attacking midfielder worked tirelessly in his role, doing well both defensively and when pushing forward. His aggressive style and accurate passing often saw him set his team on the front foot as they attacked. He also scored his side’s opening goal with a long-range stunner and created their third goal. Hotto was also name ‘man of the match’.

Cole Alexander: 7/10

The Wits defensive midfielder performed his role almost perfectly. He was a buffer in front of the back four and often broke up the Chiefs attack with well-time interceptions or no-nonsense tackling. He was the engine in the Wits midfield and kept the side ticking over.

WORST:

Itumeleng Khune: 5/10

It was not the Chiefs goalkeeper’s best night between the sticks after letting in three goals and failing to control his defence.

Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya: 5/10

The Chiefs left-back struggled with the pace of the game a bit and was out-muscled in the air, time and again, when deep crosses were put into the box. He was at fault for his side’s second goal after losing his marker. He was also booked in the second half.

Siphiwe Tshabalala: 5/10

The Chiefs midfielder was never really in the game. He struggled to get on the ball and when in possession his passing was not at it’s best. He was not his usual threatening self in attack.

Siphelele Ntshangase: 5/10

The Amakhosi central midfielder struggled to take a strangle hold on the midfield. He was outmuscled when in possession and his passing was also poor, often gifting the ball back to Wits cheaply. He did not provide the defence splitting passes in attack as is expected.

Katsande for me was a no show. Instead of targeting Ntshangase one should look at the man who was supposed to aid him to control the game. Cole was a marvel to watch, just what we needed from Katsi

Its still too early to tell but Wits bought wise players I like the inter-play from Machupu, Hotto, and Mutupa they are troublesome when it comes transitional play.

@Mentashe We lost a good goalkeeper to Pirates, Khune needs a halve season rest to bring the best out of him

My team did not have a good game at all, so Khune conceded 4 goals in 2 matches, it is going to be a long season.
