Kaizer Chiefs player ratings vs Swallows FC: Ngcobo, Frosler the pick of a poor bunch


Kaizer Chiefs looked like they were going through the motions in their 2-2 draw with Swallows FC at FNB Stadium on Saturday in what was Amakhosi's final match of a largely unsuccessful season.

  • Kaizer Chiefs, Bruce BvumaBackpagepix

    GOALKEEPER: Bruce Bvuma - 5

    Didn't get much chance to save either of the penalties, but did make a couple of blunders in which he was lucky not to get punished for.

  • Njabulo Blom, Kaizer Chiefs, February 2022Backpagepix

    RIGHT-BACK: Njabulo Blom - 5

    Not one of his better games - Swallows had quite a bit of joy down the flanks, while Blom also didn't offer much going forward.

  • Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021Backpagepix

    CENTRE-BACK: Ramahlwe Mphahlele - 5

    Struggled a bit with the pace of Mahlatsi and was subbed at half-time.

  • Njabulo Ngcobo, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2021Backpagepix

    CENTRE-BACK: Njabulo Ngcobo - 7

    A busy day at the office, he scored a great goal, defended well, but then gave away a penalty for Swallows' winner, slightly unfortunately.

  • Reeve Frosler - Kaizer ChiefsBackpagepix

    LEFT-BACK: Reeve Frosler - 7

    Provided a brilliant assist for Ngcobo's goal and was solid in his defensive duties.

  • Happy Mashiane, Kaizer Chiefs, November 2021Backpagepix

    RIGHT-WING: Happy Mashiane - 5

    Wasted a chance to stake his place at the club for next season with a quiet performance.

  • Kearyn Baccus Kaizer Chiefs April 202Backpagepix

    CENTRE-MID: Kearyn Baccus - 5

    Also battled to stem the flow of the Birds' relentless attacks and was sloppy in possession a couple of times.

  • Phathutshedzo Nange, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    CENTRE-MID: Phathutshedzo Nange - 4

    Didn't manage to get a grip on Swallows' pacey midfield runners and had his afternoon ended early after a blatant hand-ball on the goalline resulted in a red-card and a penalty.

  • Sabelo Radebe, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021Backpagepix

    CENTRE-MID: Sabelo Radebe - 6

    Showed a glimpse of his quality with a defence-splitting pass for Parker, but we didn't see enough of that sort of thing from the youngster.

  • Khama Billiat of Kaizer Chiefs shot blocked by Zitha Kwinika of Stellenbosch FC, November 2021Backpagepix

    LEFT-WING: Khama Billiat - 5

    The Zimbabwean was on the fringes of the game and never looked like scoring.

  • Bernard Parker - Kaizer ChiefsGallo

    STRIKER: Bernard Parker - 6

    Got a bit lucky when his free-kick took a big deflection and flew into the net. Other than that he didn't pose much threat to the visitors' defence.

  • Austin Dube Kaizer ChiefsBackpagepix

    SUBSTITUTE: Thabani Dube - 5

    Wasn't that much of an upgrade on Mphahlele as the Birds continued to create plenty of scoring chances in the second half.

  • Sibusiso Mabiliso, Kaizer Chiefs, November 2021Backpagepix

    SUBSTITUTE: Sibusiso Mabiliso - 5

    Like most of his first season - he failed to make an impact.

    SUBSTITUTE: Lazarous Kambole - 5

    Got nearly 30 minutes of action, but was hardly seen.

  • Mduduzi Shabalala, Kaizer Chiefs, Novermber 2021Backpagepix

    SUBSTITUTE: Mduduzi Shabalala - 6

    Teed up a chance for Dube outside the box.

    SUBSTITUTE: Nkosingiphile Ngcobo - NA

    Barely got a touch after coming on in the 87th minute.
