Thamsanqa Gabuza: 7/10
The Buccaneers striker was real threat on the night. He got on the score-sheet with a fine acrobatic effort, although he could've had another in the second half.
Issa Sarr: 6.5/10
The Senegalese central midfielder worked tirelessly in the engine room. He was the man holding things together for Pirates.
Thabo Matlaba : 7/10
Matlaba put in a solid showing on both ends of the pitch, most notably going forward, as he bagged a goal and an assist.
Oupa Manyisa: 6.5/10
The Buccaneers captain kept things ticking for his side in the middle of the park and looks to be hitting form at the right time.
Abbubaker Mobara: 7/10
Mobara was a real presence in the middle of the park. He worked tirelessly from box-to-box and also picked up the Man of the Match award.
Happy Jele: 6.5/10
Jele put in a solid showing in the heart of the Pirates defence and did well to nullify the threat of Manzini throughout the match.
Kristopher Bergman: 4/10
The Chilli Boys' central defender did not impose himself in the game and gave Thamsanqa Gabuza too much space.
Mpho Mvelase: 4/10
The former Orlando Pirates defender was sloppy at right back and was caught out of position.
Thamsanqa Sangweni: 4/10
The former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder was not assertive on the night and was late in the tackles. He was also sent off in the closing stages.
Zama Dlamini: 4/10
The Chilli Boys' goalkeeper looked a little shaky throughout the 90 minutes, and could have done a lot better for Matlaba's goal.
