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.
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.
