Best & Worst: Pirates v Celtic

Soccer Laduma rates the six best and four worst players following Orlando Pirates’ 1-1 draw with Bloemfontein Celtic on Tuesday night.

 

Tired of reading? Scroll throught the picture gallery to see the best and wors players.

 

BEST

 

Mbhazima Rikhotso: 8/10

A deserved pick as man of the match, the defender not only gave a powerful performance at the back but also scored Celtic’s goal.

 

Patrick Tignyemb: 7/10

Despite his unseemly time-wasting antics, Tignyemb put in another solid showing between the posts to earn Celtic a deserved point.

 

Bongani Sam: 7/10

Most of Celtic’s defenders put in fantastic shifts, but Sam was particularly outstanding, showing off excellent anticipation and positioning.

 

Luvuyo Memela: 8/10

Pirates’ attack immediately looked more balanced and poised when Memela came onto the pitch and he was rewarded with the equalising goal.

 

Justin Shonga: 7/10

The Buccaneers’ brightest attacking player through the 90 minutes, Shonga tested Tignyemb a couple of time and also teed up Memela’s equaliser.

 

Thembinkosi Lorch: 7/10

The hard-running Lorch nearly claimed the equaliser, only to see his shot deflect off Tignyemb and hit the post, in the highlight of a determined performance.

 

WORST

 

Abel Mabaso: 5/10 

Mabasa is a hard-working midfielder who certainly has immense value when there’s a major midfield battle to be won, but his passing and vision can be too limited at times.

 

Lucky Baloyi: 6/10 

Baloyi missed the best chance of the game when he failed to hit the target from close range after an excellent set-up by Menzi Masuku.

 

Neo Maema: 6/10 

A gifted player who can create and convert scoring chances, this was a game which passed Maema by.

 

Augustine Mulenga: 5/10

Unable to really affect the game in a meaningful way, with Mulenga struggling to link up with the likes of Justin Shonga and Thembinkosi Lorch in attack.
