Best & Worst: Orlando Pirates v Baroka FC

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 07, 2018 08:38 AM

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers following Orlando Pirates' 3-1 win over Baroka FC on Saturday evening.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see who were the best and worst on the night.

Luvuyo Memela: 9/10
Memela scored two well taken goals inside 10 minutes and setup the opening goal for Nyatama. 
Musa Nyatama: 8/10
Nyatama kept the Buccaneers ticking going forward and could have scored a brace. He showed great physical condition to play box-to-box without making errors or showing fatigue.
Thabo Matlaba: 7/10
Matlaba assisted Memela's second goal and a third for the match. He was brilliant going forward and gave the Buccaneers the sense of urgency in attack.
Justin Shonga: 7/10
Shonga probably played the best game in a Buccaneers shirt against Baroka. His trickery and assertiveness on the ball was influential in the first two goals.
Abbubaker Mobara: 6.5/10
Mobara was solid in midfield and didn't give much away although he was often isolated in attack.
Innocent Maela: 6/10
Maela was unlucky not to have got on the scoresheet after his header hit the post in the first half. He gave nothing away on the left wing where Bakgaga can prove to be dangerous.
Virgil Vries: 4/10
Vries could not command his area in the opening 30 minutes and was punished for lack of organisational abilities.
Robin Ngalande: 4/10
Ngalande was isolated upfront. He lacked service throughout the match and cut a frustrated figure.
Letladi Madubanya: 4/10
Madubanya was tactically indisciplined. He could not stick to his position in midfield and was constantly caught out of position. He was also clumsy with his tackles.
Talent Chawapiwa: 4/10
Chawapiwa offered little since coming on for the goalscorer Mduduzi Mdantsane in the 30th minute. He only came to life in the last 10 minutes and by then it was too late.
