Best & Worst: Chiefs v Pirates

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers following Kaizer Chiefs' 1-1 draw with Orlando Pirates in the Absa Premiership.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see the best and worst performers in the Soweto Derby.

Best:
 
Teenage Hadebe: 7/10
 
Hadebe played a blinder at the back for Chiefs. He made his presence felt with crucial tackles and did well to frustrate the likes of Shonga and Mulenga.
 
Ben Motshwari: 7/10
 
Motshwari ran tirelessly in midfield from box to box. His work rate in the middle was key to Pirates' dominance throughout the game.
 
Daniel Cardoso: 7/10
 
Cardoso was composed at the back despite pressure from Pirates’ attack. He also had nerves of steel to take and score a penalty in such a big occasion. 
 
Alfred Ndengane: 6.5/10 
 
The former Bloemfontein Celtic defender seems to be fitting in just fine at Pirates, as he put in another accomplished display against Billiat and Castro.
 
Bernard Parker: 6.5/10 
 
Parker was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet with a couple efforts from distance, while he was constant threat down the flank for Chiefs.
 
Thembinkosi Lorch: 7/10
 
Lorch was little quiet in the first stanza but came to life in the second. He was a real threat down the right flank and showed great composure to bag Pirates' equaliser with ten minutes remaining.
 
Worst:
 
Hendrick Ekstein: 5/10
 
Ekstein lacked spark in the middle of the park for Chiefs and was largely pedestrian in the match.
 
Justin Shonga: 5/10
 
Shonga did not have the best of games, without the supply for most of the match he was ineffective upfront for Pirates.
 
Xola Mlambo: 5/10
 
Showed a couple good touches early on, but did not have the same affect going forward as Motshwari.
 
Vincent Pule: 4/10
 
Pule showed up in glimpses, but he barley threatened in the final third and was eventually replaced in the second half.
