Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see who were the best and worst on the night.
 
Best:
 
Thapelo Tshilo: 7/10
 
The hard-tackling Rise and Shine defender was a mainstay in defence and capped off his solid display with the winning goal.
 
Rodney Ramagalela: 7/10
 
Ramagalela did not have a lot joy in the final third, but it was his work-rate down the flank that caught the eye, as he nullified the threat of Ramahlwe Mphahlele.
 
Sammy Seabi: 7/10
 
The midfielder put in a solid showing in the middle of the park and did not allow the Chiefs midfield to have their way.
 
Thabiso Semenya: 6.5/10
 
Another Polokwane defender who impressed on the night. Semenya did well against the ever-threatening Lebese throughout match.
 
Lorenzo Gordinho: 6/10
 
The Amakhosi centre-back played well after being out of the team for the past few matches and added a bit more composure to the backline.
 
Itumeleng Khune: 6/10
 
Despite ending up on the losing side, Khune pulled off some crucial saves to keep his side in the encounter.
 
Worst: 
 
Keagan Buchanan: 4/10
 
The Amakhosi midfielder was given a rare start, but hardly impacted the game going forward.
 
Hendrick Ekstein: 4/10
 
Ekstein had a couple good touches and had a chance to score in the second half, but his decision-making in the final third let him down.
 
Bernard Parker : 4/10
 
The Amakhosi striker did not have the best of games by his standards, as he found it tough against the Polokwane defenders. 
 
George Lebese: 4/10
 
Restored to the line up by Steve Komphela, but he hardly offered anything going forward in the final third.
