Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst players, following Kaizer Chiefs' 1-0 win over Orlando Pirates in the Soweto Derby.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see the best and worst performers on the day.

Best:

Gustavo Paez: 7/10
 
Paez's movement was top notch on the day, as he bagged the assist for Parker's goal. His work-rate was also impressive.
 
Lorenzo Gordinho: 6.5/10
 
Gordino put in a solid showing in the heart of defence and did well against the Pirates powerful attack. He was also unlucky to not score in the first half.
 
George Maluleka: 6.5/10
 
Maluleka combined well with Ekstein on a few occasions and helped Chiefs dominate in the first half. He also hit the upright in the first half.
 
Ramahlwe Mphahlele: 6.5/10
 
Put in an impressive showing down the right flank. He was solid defensively and added numbers going forward.
 
Hendrick Ekstein: 7/10
 
Ekstein was a real livewire for the AmaKhosi in the middle of the park and was involved in every attack going forward.
 
Tsepo Masilela: 7/10
 
Masilela hardly put a foot wrong in the defence and was defensively sound, while he also added numbers going forward.
 
Worst:
 
Issa Sarr: 4/10
 
Struggled to cope with the likes of Maluleka and Ekstein, and was careless with possession of the ball.
 
Mpho Makola: 4/10
 
Struggled to get any joy against Mphahlele, which saw play a subdued part for most of the game.
 
Oupa Manyisa: 4/10
 
Failed to stamp his authority on the encounter and barely offered anything going forward. He failed to keep up with Maluleka and Ekstein.
 
Ayanda Gcaba: 5/10
 
Gcaba's partnership with Jele did not look impressive in the first half, as they struggled to deal with pace and movement of Paez.

@faceless We did not make a mistake with Tinkler, he was intimidated by senior players and did not have the balls to bench them. Even if we kept him we would have been in the same position we are in now. To succeed as a coach at Pirates you need to have the nerves of steel to be able to do what is right for the team and the supporters and stop nursing the egos of these so called senior players that offer nothing for the team.

Poor perfomance all around, Chiefs was better first half though but my Pirates shem, they were still hungover from the alcohol break. this team is the worst in Pirates history and the coach is no better either, instead of showing his tactical genious he convince me more that he is a palooka and like many of his foreign friends, he is here for the money. I am not a fan of choping and changing coaches but this Kjel guy is worse
