Best:
 
Thabiso Kutumela: 7/10
 
The former NFD top scorer put Maritzburg United defence under pressure with his pace and energy throughout the clash. He scored a beauty of a free-kick in the first half.
 
Luvuyo Memela: 7/10
 
Memela was impressive between the lines up front, sneaking through the channels as a number 10 to make those killer through balls. He provided the assist to the second goal.
 
Justin Shonga: 6.5/10
 
Shonga played as another one of the Buccaneers number 10s. He was creative going forward and clever with his movement off the ball.
 
Musa Nyatama: 7/10
 
Nyatama worked tirelessly in midfield. His work rate is to be commended, and he was awarded the Man of the Match award.
 
Happy Jele: 7/10
 
Jele is making the most of lost time while he was out with injury. He was more composed and calm but very effective going forward. His goal also turned out to be the wining goal.
 
Siyanda Xulu: 6.5/10
 
Xulu was very solid at the back and his aerial threat should be a concern for many teams after he scored with yet another fine header.
 
Worst:
 
Mohau Mokate: 4/10
 
Mokate drifted out of the match for long periods and was subsequently substituted immediately after the break.
 
Deolin Mekoa: 4/10
 
Mekoa was out run and out-muscled by a clever and more experienced midfielder in Musa Nyatama.
 
Lebohang Maboe: 4/10
 
Maboe had a quiet game for Maritzburg and failed to provide a real attacking threat in the final third.
 
Innocent Maela: 5/10
 
Maela was unusually quiet on the left wing, most  notably in the attack, where is usually a key figure for the Buccaneers.
