Best & Worst: Pirates v Chippa

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst players, following Orlando Pirates' 2-1 win over Chippa United.

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

Best:
 
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.
 
Worst:
 
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.
