Kaizer Chiefs Player Ratings: Cardoso and Ngezana awful against Cape Town City

19:52 GMT+3 30/04/2022
Daniel Cardoso, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021
Amakhosi extended their losing streak to four matches in the PSL when they lost 2-1 to the Citizens 

GOAL runs the rule over the individual performances of the Chiefs players following the match which was played at FNB Stadium on Saturday. 

  • Brandon Petersen, Kaizer Chiefs, February 2022

    Brandon Petersen - 5.5/10

    It's now six goals conceded in four PSL matches by the Cape Town-born keeper.

    Petersen was unlucky to concede after a mistake by Daniel Cardoso when the visitors broke the deadlock, but he should have done better when Terrence Mashego beat him at the near-post. His ball distribution was good.

  • Craig Martin Cape Town City Njabulo Blom Kaizer Chiefs

    Njabulo Blom - 5/10

    Outfoxed by Man of the Match Mashego.

    Blom struggled against the tricky and pacey Mashego, who bullied the Chiefs wing-back on multiple occasions. He didn't offer much going forward.

  • Reeve Frosler, Kaizer Chiefs, April 2022

    Reeve Frosler - 6.5/10

    Put in a composed performance at left-back.

    Frosler went up and down the wing well using his speed and also used his physicality well. He was never troubled by Patrick Fischer.

  • Siyabonga Ngezana, Kaizer Chiefs, December 2021

    Siyabonga Ngezana - 5/10

    Started the match well making some well-timed clearances and interceptions. 

    Ngezana was at fault when City doubled their lead after the restart as he was a bit lethargic in closing down Mashego, who scored. However, he did well covering for his central defensive partner Cardoso.  

  • Daniel Cardoso Kaizer Chiefs Craig Martin Cape Town City

    Daniel Cardoso - 4.5/10

    Error ridden hence he had little game time this year, but he was recalled to the team today.

    Cardoso's poor headed back pass was intercepted by Craig Martin, who then scored. His ball distribution was good, but when it came to reading the game, he fumbled and he had to be rescued by his teammates at times.

  • Nkosingiphile Ngcobo of Kaizer Chiefs.

    Nkosingiphile Ngcobo - 6/10

    Worked his socks off as the playmaker.

    Ngcobo spread some accurate forward passes and created chances for his side but none of them found the back of the net. He was substituted with 12 minutes left.

  • Cole Alexander, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Cole Alexander - 5/10

    Bullied in the centre of the park by Brice Ambina.

    Alexander gave away possession cheaply on numerous occasions and struggled against the numerical superiority of the hosts in the centre. Unsurprisingly substituted a few minutes into the second half. 

  • Keagan Dolly, Kaizer Chiefs, October 2021

    Keagan Dolly - 6/10

    Frustrated by City's defence as he couldn't penetrate it.

    Dolly resorted to taking long-range shots which saw him force goalkeeper Hugo Marqgues into making two good saves. He was also replaced in the 78th minute.

  • Bernard Parker, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Bernard Parker - 5.5/10

    Recalled to the starting line-up after being an unused substitute against Golden Arrows in midweek.

    Parker had his moments as he operated as a central midfielder but it just was not enough as he carried the ball forward with most of his passes being intercepted. He was substituted just after the hour-mark.

  • Khama Billiat, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Khama Billiat - 7/10

    Chiefs' best player on the day.

    Billiat showed real zeal to make something happen and was threatening every time he advanced higher. Chiefs grabbed a late consolation goal after his low shot was parried by Marques and Dumisani Zuma netted from the rebound.

  • Leonardo Castro, Kaizer Chiefs, December 2021

    Leonardo Castro - 5/10

    Having played well against Arrows, Castro was not his usual self. 

    Castro was ineffective upfront as a centre forward and was nowhere to be seen as he was completely isolated upfront which led to his substitution in the 54th minute.  

  • Phathuthsedzo Nange of Kaizer Chiefs

    Phathutshedzo Nange - 6/10

    Brought some stability to the Chiefs midfield when he came on in the 54th minute as he won his duels, while also linking up well with his teammates. 

  • Samir Nurkovic of Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Samir Nurkovic - 5/10

    Came on in the 54th minute and he tried to link-up play, but he misplaced his passes and chances didn't fall for him in the City defence.

  • Kgaogelo Sekgota of Kaizer Chiefs

    Kgaogelo Sekgota - 5.5/10

    Introduced in the 65th minute and his speed was useful in making a few openings in the City defence, but his final product was not good enough.

  • Sabelo Radebe, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Sabelo Radebe - 5/10

    His passing range was on display but he offered no real attacking threat having been introduced in the 78th minute.

  • Dumisani Zuma, Kaizer Chiefs, April 2022

    Dumisani Zuma - 7/10

    Came on in the 78th minute and he improved the hosts' attack with his penetrative runs. He timed his run when he netted Chiefs' consolation goal.
