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

Best:

Ben Motshwari: 7/10
 
Motshwari put in a solid showing in the middle of the park and was key to Wits' dominance. He also bagged the Man of the Match award.
 
Phakamani Mahlambi: 6.5/10
 
Looked livley for the Clever Boys in the first half and he also provided the assist for Malajila's goal with a fine run down the right flank.
 
Reeve Frosler: 7/10
 
The young full-back continues to excel for Wits and he put in another impressive showing against Pirates with some solid defensive work.
 
Thulani Hlatshwayo: 6.5/10
 
Hlatshwayo was a rock in the Wits defence and gave Gabuza and Ndoro no space to breath in the final third.
 
Abbubaker Mobara: 6.5/10
 
Mobara worked his socks off in the middle of the park and was equally as good when he deputised for Gcaba in defence.
 
Bongani Khumalo: 6/10
 
Given a rare start by Gavin Hunt and he did not disappoint. Alongside Hlatshwayo, Khumalo hardly put a foot wrong throughout the 90 minutes.
 
Worst:
 
Mpho Makola: 4/10
 
The midfielder had a very quiet evening and offered very little going forward.
 
Thabo Rakhale: 4/10
 
Rakhale struggled against Hlanti throughout the match and he also squandered a big chance shortly after the halftime break.
 
Oupa Manyisa: 4/10
 
The Pirates skipper failed to offer any creativity in the final third and lost the midfield battle.
 
Patrick Phungwayo: 4/10
 
Looked lively going forward in the opening exchanges but defensively, he was a bit shaky and he allowed Mahlambi to run around him for the opening goal.
