Best & Worst: Chiefs v Stars

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers, following Kaizer Chiefs’ 1-0 win over Platinum Stars in an Absa Premiership match at FNB Stadium on Sunday.

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


Joseph Molangoane: 7/10

He was solid in his right-back role where he defended really well. He also got forward down the flanks in attack where he supplied dangerous crosses into the box. He created Chiefs’ opening goal with a pin-point delivery from the right.

Willard Katsande: 7/10

He was solid in his central midfield role, where he provided a great buffer in front of the back four and dictated the flow of the game. He also found himself in a couple of attacking areas and saw his efforts go narrowly wide of the target.

Hendrick Ekstein: 8/10

He was energetic in his attacking midfield role, where he tried to push the pace of the game. His passing was also accurate and he often created space for his team-mates with his through-balls. He scored the only goal of the game for Chiefs with a clinical finish from eight-yards out. He was given the Man of the Match award.

Leonardo Castro: 7/10

He was lively in attack and looked extremely dangerous when he got the ball. His supply from midfield was not always the best which meant he had to go looking for work, which he did and had a few shots on goal which narrowly missed the target or were saved by the keeper.

Ryan De Jongh: 7/10

De Jongh worked really hard in his midfield role to keep the Chiefs attack at bay. He worked tirelessly to get back in defence and also pushed forward in attack. He supplied a couple of good passes which saw his team-mates into space and had a few shots on goal which narrowly missed the target.

Riyaad Norodien: 7/10

He was the key man for Stars in the middle of the park, where he used his creativity and skill to cause problems for the Chiefs defence. His dribbling skills saw him beat numerous markers before playing teammates into space in key areas. He also had a couple of shots on goal which were just wide or well-saved.


Tsepo Masilela: 5/10

He was not at his best on the day in his left-back role. He defended well for the most part, but he struggled to assist going forward and often gave the ball away cheaply with some poor passing. He was substituted in the 80th minute.

Ryan Moon: 5/10

He struggled in his attacking role and was never really in the game. When he did get some time on the ball his passing was not at its best and his shooting on goal was poor as well. He was substituted early in the second half.

Wangu Gome: 5/10

The left-back struggled to deal with the attacking threat of Chiefs. Molangoane gave him a hard time and often beat him down the flank. Gome was largely at fault for the opening goal.

Charles Baloyi: 5/10

Baloyi struggled to offer any threat in his attacking midfield role. He saw very little of the ball and when he was in possession he gave it away cheaply with poor passing. He was substituted early in the second half.
