    Ben Motshwari - 7/10

  • Thembinkosi Lorch of Orlando Pirates

    Thembinkosi Lorch - 9/10

  • Zakhele Lepasa of Orlando Pirates, July 2019

    Zakhele Lepasa - 7/10

    Lepasa was lively from the start of the game and he scored with a well-taken header and kept it going until he was subbed off.

    Happy Jele - 6/10

    Replaced Hlatshwayo with six minutes left and he did not have too much work to do with Chiefs having given up after conceding the third goal.
  • Fortune Makaringe, Orlando Pirates, October 2019

    Fortune Makaringe -6/10

    Replaced Man of the Match Lorch in the 84th minute and he got forward a few times with Pirates in complete control of the game.
