Best & Worst: Pirates v Maritzburg

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers following Orlando Pirates' 0-0 draw with Maritzburg United in the Absa Premiership.

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

Best:

Vincent Pule -6.5/10

Dominant as ever as he was lively on the ball and caused problems with his runs down the right side.

Augustine Mulenga - 6/10

Played his role well from time to time and was unfortunate not to make the most of the few chances created.

Asavela Mbekile -7/10

In just his third game since arriving from Mamelodi Sundowns, ‘Shoes’ was stellar at right back as he closed down a major supply of the Team of Choice.

Siphesihle Ndlovu- 6.5/10

Ndlovu individual strutted his stuff well as he was constantly moving between defence and attack and never got his passes wrong.

Richard Ofori - 7/10

Made a few great saves especially in the first half, but did a sterling job in organising their defensive shape after losing possession.

Brian Onyango -7/10

The Ugandan showed his prowess in the heart of defence, winning every aerial challenge and closing down the spaces in the box.

Worst:

Justin Shonga -5/10

After becoming the derby hero, was back to his old self as he missed a sitter few minutes inside the second half.

Mpho Makola-5/10

Without Xola Mlambo, he looked out of sorts as he hardly got time on the ball to move forward and created havoc.

Happy Jele - 4/10

Subsequent lack of form has seen him experience another slow game as he from time to time failed to get the better of Maritzburg’s attackers.

Andrea Fileccia – 4/10

Brought in to provide aerial dominance, but he was totally poor on that front as he failed to command the area and won little to no headers at all.
