Best & Worst: Maritzburg v Chiefs

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers, following Kaizer Chiefs' 0-0 draw with Maritzburg United in the Absa Premiership.

Click through the gallery to see the best and worst performers on the night,

Best:
 
Siyanda Xulu: 8/10
 
Xulu playing against his former was a mainstay in defence, especially after Maritzburg went a man down in the 15th minute. He led from the back and did well to frustrate the Chiefs front three.
 
Siphelele Ntshangase: 6.5/10
 
Ntshangase continued to impress with his passing ability in midfield, as he kept things ticking throughout the game.
 
Hendrick Ekstein: 6.5/10
 
Ekstein showed some good link up play with Ntshangase at times, and was unlucky not to score when he shaved the upright in the first half.
 
Keagan Buchanan: 6/10
 
Buchanan was impressive in the middle of the park against his former team. His discipline on the night was impressive as Maritzburg went a man down, while he also used the ball well.
 
Ramahlwe Mphahlele: 6.5/10
 
While Chiefs were dominating, Mphahlele provided another threat down the right flank, while he was defensively sound when called upon.
 
Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya: 6,5/10
 
Ntiya Ntiya showed promise once again. His performance and a sweet left foot were eye catching down on the left wing, even after picking up a yellow card in the fist half.
 
Worst:
 
Andrea Fileccia: 4/10
 
Fileccia was playing his first game of the season after a long lay-off with injury and it showed. He lacked match fitness.
 
Kabelo Mahlasela: 4/10
 
Mahlasela played too deep and thereby limited his influence on the game, although he did setup Khama Billiat for a glorious chance.
 
Khama Billiat: 5/10
 
Billiat saw a lot of the ball, but he let himself down with a few bad touches in the box, including a big chance in the first half.
 
Deolin Mekoa: 5/10
 
Mekoa, who’s always influential going forward, was very quiet and lacked his usual adventure.
