3:22 AM IST 06/04/22
Nkosingiphile Ngcobo of Kaizer Chiefs.
The Soweto giants were held to a 0-0 draw by the Rockets in a PSL encounter which was played at FNB Stadium on Tuesday night.

GOAL rates the performances of the Amakhosi players.

  • Brandon Petersen, Kaizer Chiefs, February 2022

    Brandon Petersen - 6.5/10

    Relatively untroubled throughout the game with Chiefs controlling the proceedings.

    Petersen made just two saves as he denied Orebotse Mongae and Wayde Lekay, but his distribution was good.

  • Njabulo Blom, Kaizer Chiefs, October 2021

    Njabulo Blom - 6/10

    Not a particularly eye-catching performance from the versatile player at right-back.

    Blom didn't offer much going forward as he was more concerned with stopping the hard-running Lindokuhle Mbatha and he managed to contain the Galaxy star.

  • Reeve Frosler, Kaizer Chiefs, November 2021

    Reeve Frosler - 7/10

    Played better than fellow full-back Blom.

    Frosler was good both defensively and offensively as he constantly pushed forward and delivered some quality crosses, while also tracking back to help his side defend.

  • Siyabonga Ngezana, Kaizer Chiefs, December 2021

    Siyabonga Ngezana - 6.5/10

    Targeted by Augustine Chidi Kwem.

    The Galaxy striker ran straight at Ngezana whenever he was in possession of the ball, but the Chiefs defender held his own until he was substituted while looking exhausted in the second-half.

  • Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Ramalwe Mphahlele - 7/10

    The busiest Chiefs centre-back.

    Mphahelele marshalled the backline with aplomb and he did his best to prevent Galaxy from scoring as he made some crucial blocks and clearances.

  • Austin Dube, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2021

    Austin Dube - 6.5/10

    Kept busy by Mongae on the night and performed well. 

    Dube made two important blocks to deny Mongae in quick succession as Chiefs' last player in defence and he was substituted when Amakhosi were pushing for a late goal.

  • Cole Alexander, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Cole Alexander - 7/10

    Gave an action-packed display in the middle of the park. 

    Alexander made tackles and clearances in his role to shield the defence, while also pushing forward on a few occasions, but he couldn't score as he did against Chippa United on Saturday.

  • Kearyn Baccus of Kaizer Chiefs, November 2021

    Kearyn Baccus - 5/10

    Handed his second successive start.

    Baccus had an ineffective first half with Mlungesi Mbunjana outsmarting him in their midfield battle and that led to the Chiefs midfielder being taken off just after the hour-mark.

  • Bernard Parker, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Bernard Parker - 5.5/10

    Worked hard as usual as he looked to carry balls from midfield into the attack.

    However, Parker did not have too much direct impact on the game as most of his passes were intercepted in Galaxy's half.

  • Keagan Dolly, Kaizer Chiefs, October 2021

    Keagan Dolly - 7/10

    One of Chiefs' brightest attacking sparks.

    Dolly was involved in almost all of Amakhosi attacks - linking up well which teammates and taking shots at goal. He was denied twice by goalkeeper Melusi Buthelezi.

  • Samir Nurkovic of Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Samir Nurkovic - 5.5/10

    His link-up play is slowly improving.

    Nurklovic combined well with his teammates in the final third, but clear cut chances didn't fall for him on the night.

  • Nkosingiphile Ngcobo of Kaizer Chiefs, September 2021,

    Nkosingiphile Ngcobo - 6.5/10

    Chiefs have struggled against teams that sit back and defend deep this season, but Ngcobo, who has been used as a bit-part player by coach Stuart Baxter, showed that he could be the solution when they face such opponents after coming on in the 65th minute.

    Ngcobo was able to unlock the Galaxy defence with some incisive passes and also took long-range shots that were target including one which hit the upright with Buthelezi well-beaten.

  • Sabelo Radebe, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Sabelo Radebe - 6/10

    Just like Ngcobo, Radebe injected some urgency and creativity into Chiefs' midfield after coming in the 65th minute. He also forced Buthelezi into making a good save.

  • Daniel Cardoso, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Daniel Cardoso - 6/10

    Also came on in the 65th minute and he was rock solid at the back he as made some vital blocks and clearances when Galaxy counterattacked.
