Sundowns Player Ratings v Polokwane
Soccer Laduma rates the individual performances of the Mamelodi Sundowns players, following their 5-0 win over Polokwane City.
Here are the ratings:
Denis Onyango: 6
It proved to be a quiet evening for the Mamelodi Sundowns shot-stopper, who had to be replaced in the 80th minute through injury.
Siyanda Zwane: 6
Zwane put in a solid showing down the right flank, both defensively and on the attack.
Alje Schut: 6
Was hardly troubled by the Polokwane attackers and was substituted after the hour-mark.
Ramahlwe Mphahlele: 7
Continues to impress in the heart of the defence alongside Schut, and frustrated the the likes of Puleng Tlolane and Essua Kanyenda.
Tebogo Langerman: 6
Langerman put in a solid showing in the left full back position and hardly put a foot wrong.
Hlompho Kekana: 6
Was solid sitting in front of the back four but didn't see much of him going forward.
Bongani Zungu: 6
Much like Kekana, Zungu sat deep for large parts of the 90 minutes and only got forward on a few occasions.
Themba Zwane: 7
Looked lively from the start in a more central role and was involved in quite a few of Sundowns' attacks.
Anthony Laffor: 8
Sundown's best player on the pitch, Laffor got his name on the score-sheet with a fine finish and also picked up three assists.
Khama Billiat: 8
Another impressive showing from the skillful winger, as he bagged a delightful brace, with his second the goal, being the pick of the bunch.
Cuthbert Malajila: 7
Malajila was a constant threat and opened the scoring with a composed finish, before setting up Laffor for his goal.
Thabo Nthethe: 6
Brought on to replace Schut in the 60th minute and did well alongside Mphahlele.
Rodney Ramagalela: 7
Replaced Malajila in the 70th minute and scored his first goal of the season with a powerful effort from the edge of the area.
Kennedy Mweene: NA
Hardly had anything to do during his 10 minute cameo.
