Best & Worst: Pirates v Ajax

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst players, following Orlando Pirates' 0-0 draw with Ajax Cape Town.

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

Best:
 
Oupa Manyisa: 6.5/10
 
Manyisa kept things ticking for Pirates in the middle of the park and a few good touches in the middle of the park. Although he did miss a big chance in the first half.
 
Issa Sarr: 6.5/10
 
The Senegalese midfielder started off sluggishly but grew as the game went on and he did well to protect the back four.
 
Brandon Peterson: 7/10
 
The Urban Warriors goalkeeper was terrific between the sticks. He made a couple of game saving saves in both halves. 
 
Mosa Lebusa: 6.5/10
 
The Urban Warriors left back was also instrumental in keeping the clean-sheet for the visitors. He did well against Rakhale and made a couple vital tackles.
 
Travis Graham: 6/10
 
Much like Sarr, Graham did a good job of protecting his back four, while he was also composed whenever in possession.
 
Thabo Matlaba: 6/10
 
The Buccaneers full-back gave his best. He was solid defensively and was not shy to add numbers going forward.
 
Worst: 
 
Tendai Ndoro: 4/10
 
The Pirates striker was anonymous in the match and hardly threatened February's goal.
 
Dove Wome: 4/10
 
Wome did not have the best of games by his standards and was quiet in the final third for Pirates.
 
Prince Nxumalo: 4/10
 
The Urban Warriors striker looked lively in the opening stages, but did not offer enough for the rest of the clash.
 
Riyaad Norodien: 5/10
 
Restored to the line up and had a couple glimpses at goal, but his overall contribution was not at his usual best.
