Best & Worst: Ajax v Pirates

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers following Orlando Pirates' 2-1 victory over Ajax Cape Town.
 
BEST: 
 
Justice Chabalala: 7.5/10
 
The centre-back looked confident and made some crucial blocks and tackles throughout the game to maintain Pirates' lead.
 
Tendai Ndoro: 7.5/10
 
The striker scored both of the Buccaneers' goals with composure. He had a quiet second half.
 
Oupa Manyisa: 7/10
 
The skipper made a few big interceptions, one of which led to Ndoro's second goal as Manyisa produced the through-ball.
 
Brighton Mhlongo: 7/10
 
Mhlongo was tested especially late into the game, but he kept his nerve under heavy pressure and made one sensational save in stoppage time.
 
Nathan Paulse: 7/10
 
The Ajax striker took his goal well and provided the hosts with a constant threat on the front lines.
 
Musa Lebusa: 6.5/10
 
Lebusa produced some excellent service from the flank, curling in crosses for Paulse to feed off of.
 
WORST: 
 
Brandon Petersen: 5/10
 
The goalkeeper didn't inspire much confidence and made a massive error which gave Pirates the lead.
 
Roscoe Pietersen: 5.5/10
 
The centre-back struggled on occasion to make the right decisions and was caught out during Ndoro's second goal.
 
Happy Jele: 5.5/10
 
Jele made one significant mistake as he was caught ball-watching during Paulse's headed goal. He didn't seem switched on for the game.
 
Thabo Rakhale: 5.5/10
 
The winger was ineffective going forward and unnecessarily lost possession in dangerous positions.
