Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers, following Orlando Pirates' 1-1 draw with Highlands Park on Saturday evening.
Click through the gallery to see the best and worst performers on the day.
Vincent Pule: 7/10
On debut following his arrival from Bidvest Wits, Pule played like a seasoned campaigner with so much confidence on the ball and nearly found the back of the net on a couple occasions.
Justin Shonga: 6/10
A second-half substitute, Shonga showed calmness and composure to tuck away the penalty and gave Bucs a point. In hindsight, his entry brought a new offensive dimension to what was then a stale attack.
Xola Mlambo: 7/10
The midfield maestro kept good control of the ball and most of his passes were never astray. His experience showed against the league’s new boys.
Bevan Fransman: 7/10
The veteran defender kept it solid on his debut for the Lions of the North and did well restrict to the Pirates players to efforts from distance.
Tapuwa Kapini: 7/10
The veteran shot-stopper made a few important saves, none more than denying Mulenga on successive occasions in the latter stages of the clash.
Innocent Maela: 6.5/10
The full-back kept things simple as he usually does. He was threat going forward and was defensively sound throughout.
Lindokuhle Mbatha: 5/10
Was virtually absent throughout the game, offered very little going forward and aside from a few shots from range, never asked pertinent questions of Bucs rear-guard.
Sabelo Nyembe: 4/10
The young striker was isolated throughout the game, as his ability to link up as a target man with the rest of the team never quite took off.
Paseka Mako: 5/10
Showed a little glimpses of he what he can do, but his influence was minimal going forward.
Thembinkosi Lorch: 5/10
Similarly to Mako, Lorch did not have a great impact in the final third, which saw him replaced shortly into the second half.
