Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers following Kaizer Chiefs' 2-1 loss to Golden Arrows in the Absa Premiership.

Best:

Lungisani Mngwengwe: 7,5/10

Mngwengwe was solid at the back and constantly thwarted Chiefs attacks. He played with a lot heart in defence and deservedly got the Man of the Match award.

Limbikani Mzava: 7.5/10

He was impressive in the heart of the Arrows defence and also had the confidence to slot away to penalties to secure three points.

Lerato Lamola: 7/10

Lamola’s pace and trickery exposed the Chiefs defence badly, as he won the first penalty. He ran tirelessly to create chances for Arrows.

Maximilian Mbaeva: 7/10

Abafana Bes’thende goalkeeper made crucial saves in the game. His imposing figure and command of the box preserved Arrows’ lead especially in the second stanza.

Kabelo Mahlasela: 6.5/10

Mahlasela showed glimpses of brilliance going forward and eliminated numbers with ease for Amakhosi. With more game time he could become key for Chiefs’ revival.

Leonardo Castro: 6.5/10

Castro pulled one goal back for Chiefs and was finding gaps in the Arrows defence. It was notable that he was even tracking back to defend when Amakhosi were out of position.

Worst: 

Eric Mathoho: 4/10

Made a rare appearance in the league, but Mathoho was clumsy in conceding the first penalty and was often beaten by Lamola to the ball.

Teenage Hadebe: 4/10

Hadebe made a similar error with a reckless tackle in the first, while the partnership with Mathoho was very shaky at times, which was evident with the amount of times Arrows got beyond the defence.

Bernard Parker: 4/10

Returned to the starting line-up, but he barely had any influence going forward.

Danny Venter: 5/10

Venter cut a lonely figure for Arrows for most of the match. He was hardly involved and looked isolated.
