On Sunday evening, the Buccaneers were defeated to a 0-0 draw by Libyan heavyweights in their final Caf Confederation Cup Group B match.
The Buccaneers' individual performances are scrutinized by GOAL.
6.5/10 for Richard Ofori
Throughout the game, he was quite trouble-free.
In the encounter, Ofori only made one save and was at the top of his game with the ball at his feet, completing the majority of his long passes.
Abel Mabaso - 6/10 Backpagepix
Being used as a right-back, he had a quiet game.
Mabaso seemed at ease on the ball, but he didn't need to use his speed to track back and didn't have much to offer moving forward.
Paseka Mako - 7/10 Backpagepix
Mako, unlike Mabaso, was occupied on the left flank.
While being rock strong defensively, the small player always ventured forward and provided some deadly crosses into the opposition's box.
Backpagepix 7/10 Happy Jele
The captain had a relatively pleasant evening.
Jele handled the presence of the gigantic Mohamed Zubiya admirably, and he also made some crucial interceptions.
Ntsikelelo Nyauza - 7.5/10 Backpagepix
Stepped up to the plate at Orlando Stadium to deliver a good performance.
Nyauza read the game well, making crucial interceptions, and his passing abilities struck the eye when he pushed towards the middle of the field.
Ben Motshwari - 7/10 Backpagepix
After being given a rare start in 2022, he is eager to make an impression.
Motshwari rarely made a bad pass and blew the Teha away with his vision and link-up play, while also regaining possession for his team.
Fortune Makaringe - 5/10 Backpagepix
Another guy looking to make an impression and earn a spot in the starting lineup.
Makaringe, on the other hand, went all out to impress and was clumsy in possession, missing Pirares' finest chance after being set up by Kabelo Dlamini.
7.5/10 Backpagepix Kabelo Dlamini
On the night, he was one of the Pirates' top players.
Dlamini shone brightly, always in the middle of things and setting up his colleagues for success. He took a few shots at goal, one of which almost resulted in an own goal.
Backpagepix\sBongani Sam (six out of ten)
He was used as a left forward and performed admirably.
Sam made a few good passes and crosses, as well as displaying his dribbling ability in the attacking third, but his effect faded following the restart.
Bandile Shandu gets a five out of ten.
Against the Teha, he played as a right forward.
Shandu was quite active in the first half but lacked the cutting edge, and he also squandered a golden opportunity to score before being pulled after the interval, looking fatigued.
Kwame Peprah - 6/10 Backpagepix
A few minutes into the game, he came close to scoring with a header that went wide of the target.
Peprah accomplished nothing more noteworthy after that, and he was replaced by Thembinkosi Lorch just after the hour mark.

In the 65th minute, he came on and displayed his explosive pace while also combining well with his teammates, but he was unable to convert his chances.
Frank Mhango - 5/10 Backpagepix
Came on at the same time as Lorch and provided no real attacking danger, with Al-Ittihad defenders doing a good job of closing him down whenever he had the ball.
5/10 Siphesihle Ndlovu
He was introduced with 12 minutes remaining and had no impact after replacing Bucs' livewire Dlamini.
