Khama Billiat, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021
GOAL runs the rule over the individual performances of the Amakhosi players following the Soweto giants' 1-0 defeat to the Rockets on Saturday evening

  • Brandon Petersen, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Brandon Petersen - 6/10

    The Amakhosi custodian made two important saves in the first half as he kept Galaxy at bay.

    However, Petersen had no luck with Augustine Chidi Kwem's strike as he was left exposed by his defence.

  • Njabulo Blom kaizer Chiefs

    Njabulo Blom - 5/10

    Soundly beaten by Lindokuhle Mbatha all night.

    Blom didn't provide much threat going forward either as he endured one of his worst performances as a full-back.

  • Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya, Kaizer Chiefs, December 2021

    Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya - 5.5/10

    Sprinted forward with great energy and purpose.

    However, Ntiya-Ntiya's crosses lacked precision and he also struggled defensively against the hard-running Orebotse Mongae.

  • Daniel Cardoso, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Daniel Cardoso - 5/10

    Far from his resolute self, looking all over the place.

    Cardoso offers no stability in defence and his positioning was suspect whenever Galaxy came forward in attack.

  • Austin Dube, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2021

    Austin Dube - 6/10

    Played well against his former side.

    Dube was strong in the air, winning his aerial duels against Kwem, but he was eclipsed by other defenders around him.

  • Siyabonga Ngezana, Kaizer Chiefs, December 2021

    Siyabonga Ngezana - 5/10

    The towering defender endured a poor game.

    Galaxy forwards twisted him inside out with their movement and deadly link-ups and he was substituted having picked up a booking in the second-half.

  • Phathuthsedzo Nange of Kaizer Chiefs

    Phathutshedzo Nange - 4/10

    Deployed as a holding midfielder and he flopped.

    Nange mistimed his tackles and gave away possession for Galaxy's goal. He was then hopelessly off the pace in the recovery.

  • Nkosingiphile Ngcobo of Kaizer Chiefs, September 2021,

    Nkosingiphile Ngcobo - 6/10

    Undoubtedly Chiefs' best attacker on the night.

    Ngcobo caused the Rockets all sorts of problems down the centre, but he couldn't keep his shots from range on target.

  • Khama Billiat, Kaizer Chiefs

    Khama Billiat - 5/10

    Struggled to replicate his usual form on the night.

    Billiat failed to muster a single shot on goal with the visitors' defence doing a great job to keep him quiet.

  • Keagan Dolly

    Keagan Dolly - 6/10

    Burst into life after the restart.

    Of all Chiefs players, Dolly came closest to scoring, connecting with a decisive cross from the right, but his effort went just over the crossbar from close range.

  • Bernard Parker, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Bernard Parker - 5/10

    Totally anonymous in the match.

    Parker endured a poor game and he was unsurprisingly not substituted when coach Stuart Baxter introduced strikers Leonardo Castro and Samir Nurkovic.

  • Samir Nurkovic of Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Samir Nurkovic - 6/10

    Came on in the 57th minute and he made a few runs into the Galaxy box which saw him force goalkeeper Melusi Buthelezi into an easy save.

  • Leonardo Castro, Kaizer Chiefs, December 2021

    Leonardo Castro - 5/10

    Introduced in the 58th minute and the Colombian striker couldn't get as involved as Chiefs would have liked.

  • Lebogang Manyama, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2021

    Lebogang Manyama - 5

    He was strong in possession after coming on in the 71st minute, but he lacked the pace to keep up with the game's tempo.

  • Reeve Frosler, Kaizer Chiefs, November 2021

    Reeve Frosler - 5/10

    He came on for the last 21 minutes of the match, but he was barely seen.
