Ronwen Williams: 6
Made a couple of good saves, but let in four goals.
Michael Boxall: 5
Did not have the best game in his right-back position. He struggled to keep tabs of Lebese and gave away a penalty late in the game.
Bongani Khumalo: 6
Had and up and down game. At times he was superb in defence, but also lacked pace at times. He did score a goal in the first half which was disallowed because of off-sides.
Clayton Daniels: 6
Had an average game and at times struggled with the pace of the Chiefs attack. His discipline was also not great.
Sibusiso Khumalo: 6
He had a decent game in his left-back role. He kept the likes of Tshabalala at bay, but was not very influential in attack.
Enocent Mkhabela: 6
He had a good first half and played the sweeper role to perfection, but struggled to keep up with the pace of the game in the second half.
Dean Furman: 5
He had a good game for the most part in his defensive midfield role, but in the end his poor discipline let him down as he received two yellow cards and was sent for an early shower.
Thusa Phala: 6
Had a good first half, both assisting in attack and defence. However, he did not feature much in the second half and struggled to adjust to Chiefs second half tactics.
Kingston Nkhatha: 6
He was not really in the game much. He floated around and did not see much of the ball. He was fouled inside the box in the 19th minute, but no penalty was given.
Dove Wome: 7
He had a good game in attack and was a constant threat for the Chiefs defence. He scored a spectacular goal in the first half.
Jeremey Brockie: 6

Came on in the 63rd minute, but did not have much of an impact. He did his job for the most part, but was not creative in attack.
Bradley Grobler: 6
Came on in the 69th minute as SuperSport chased the game, but he did not see much ball possession and did not influence the game.

Came on in the 78th minute, but had very little impact on the game. He tried to push forward in attack, but was ineffective.

Had an average game in his right-back role. He did his job in defence, but did not get forward that much in attack.
Lorenzo Gordinho: 6
Did ok in his centre-back role. At times he struggled to keep up with the pace of the game. Hoever, he did well for his first start in an Absa Premiership role.
Siyanda Xulu: 7
Was good in his centre-back role. He marshalled the defence well and was also a threat in attack at set-pieces.
Keegan Ritchie: 6
Was ok in his left back role. He did his job in his defence, but did not over much in terms of attack.
