Vincent Pule -7.5/10
Got the game up and running with the opener in the first half, and throughout the game was a constant menace to United’s defence drifting from left to right.
Xola Mlambo – 8/10
Bossed the middle of the park with ease and showed little respect to Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Dean Furman, whilst creating the second goal with a superb assist.
Aubrey Modiba -7/10
United’s best player, as he gave his all against a team resolute in defence. Was left with little support whenever on the attack but his assist resulted in Bongani Khumalo getting on the scoreboard.
Ben Motshwari -7/10
Alongside Mlambo, ran the show for the Buccaneers in the middle of the park and was duly rewarded with his first goal for the club.
Fagrie Lakay -7/10
Replaced Thuso Phala at the midway point in the first half, and did what was required of him to cause more havoc in Bucs defence which he carried out effectively.
Evans Rusike – 6.5/10
Drifted in and out of the box, and looked threatening from time to time particularly when playing cut backs from outside the area.
Clayton Daniels – 4/10
Left horribly isolated at the back in containing the threats of Bucs, with little support and was ball-watching most of the time as with Pule’s opener.
Ntsikelelo Nyauza – 5/10
In and out of the game, as he never really got stuck in with the challenges but did manage to clear the danger away whenever required to do so.
Bradley Grobler – 3/10
The Bafana Bafana striker was guilty of missing big chances, particularly in the first half and struggled to handle Happy Jele.
Thuso Phala – 2/10
His early substitution best sums up his performance. Given how he always shines against Bucs, his removal was arguably the turning point for them to control the game.
