Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2022
The Glamour Boys saw their five-match unbeaten run in the PSL come to an end when they succumbed to a loss to the Chilli Boys.

Kaizer Chiefs recorded their fourth league defeat of the season when they lost 2-1 to Chippa United at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday evening.
The Soweto giants scored first through Siyabonga Ngezana, but the Chilli Boys netted through Siphelele Luthuli and Edmilson Dove (own-goal) to claim a win.
GOAL runs the rule over the individual performances of the Chiefs players.

  •  Brandon Petersen, Kaizer Chiefs

    Brandon Petersen - 4.5/10

    Worst performance in Chiefs colours.

    Petersen's ball distribution and communication were poor throughout the game, and he should have done better to stop Chippa's second goal.

  • Reeve Frosler, Kaizet Chiefs, August 2022

    Reeve Frosler - 5.5/10

    Kept busy by Azola Matrose.
    Frosler didn't offer much going forward as he was more concerned with stopping the Chippa winger, who tormented him throughout the game.

  • Sifiso Hlanti, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Sifiso Hlanti - 6/10

    Decent game showing good man-marking skills.
    Hlanti did well to contain Thabiso Lebitso, who had a quiet match. However, Hlanti was unlucky when the ball deflected off him before Luthuli scored. 

  • Edmilson Dove Kaizer Chiefs.

    Edmilson Dove - 6.5/10

    Continued his good form.
    Dove was rock-solid as he used his good positioning and anticipation to his advantage - dominating in defence. Unfortunately, he was adjudged to have scored an own goal as Ronald Pfumbidzai's header came off him.

  • Samir Nurkovic, Siyabonga Ngezana, Kaizer Chiefs vs Royal AM, September 2022

    Siyabonga Ngezana - 7/10

    Handed another start despite Zitha Kwinika's return from suspension.
    Ngezana made a good start to the game in a typically combative fashion and he scored with a thumping header. He had to be substituted with 15 minutes left having picked up an injury.

  • Njabulo Blom, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Njabulo Blom - 7/10

    Put in a commanding performance in the middle of the park.
    Blom was solid defensively, making timely clearances and reading Chippa's movements intelligently. He also made a few forward runs with the ball as he looked to create chances for his teammates. 

  • Yusuf Maart Kaizer Chiefs

    Yusuf Maart - 5/10

    Went missing in midfield with Blom overworked.
    Maart was outclassed by Man of the Match Siphesihle Mkhize who neutralized the Chiefs midfielder. He was substituted towards the end of the game.

  • Keagan Dolly of Kaizer Chiefs and Wandile Mabuza of Royal Am, September 2022

    Keagan Dolly - 6/10

    Mixed performance.
    Dolly's delivery from set-pieces was brilliant and he grabbed an assist when Ngezana headed home his well-taken corner-kick. However, Dolly was wasteful in the final third - missing a sitter in the closing stages.

  • Sibongiseni Mthethwa Stellenbosch Ashley Du Preez Kaizer Chiefs.jpg

    Ashley du Preez - 5/10

    Failed to make an impact.
    Du Preez drove at defenders in a bid to unsettle the visitors' backline on a few occasions, but his end product was poor which led to his substitution. 

  • Kgaogelo Sekgota, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Kgaogelo Sekgota - 6/10

    A constant threat to Chippa's defence.
    Sekgota used his pace and football IQ to get behind the Chilli Boys' defence, and he delivered some decent crosses. He was surprisingly substituted just before the hour-mark.

  • Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana, Kaizer Chiefs, October 2022

    Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana - 5/10

    Bimenyimana got himself into good positions, but he was let down by some poor finishing including a sitter with only goalkeeper Lloyd Kazapua to the beat in the dying minutes of the game.

  • Khama Billiat, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Khama Billiat - 5.5/10

    Came on in the 57th minute as he returned from injury and he combined well with Dolly, but chances didn't fall for him in Chippa's box.

  • Siyethemba Sithebe of Kaizer Chiefs.

    Siyethemba Sithebe - 5,5/10

    His role was to carry Chiefs forward from midfield when he came on in the 57th minute and he did that with some promising runs with the ball, but Chiefs were wasteful.

  • Zitha Kwinika, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Zitha Kwinika - 5/10

    Replaced Ngezana with 15 minutes and he was never tested as Chiefs were pushing for a late goal.

  • George Matlou, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2022

    Lehlogonolo Matlou - N/A

    Came on in the 85th minute and it was too late to warrant a rating.
