Red-hot Orlando Pirates striker Boitumelo Radiopane was the talk of town in the latest round of the DStv Diski Challenge.

Radiopane netted a brace in a 3-2 away win against Mamelodi Sundowns to keep the Young Bucs atop the log table, three points ahead of surprise packages Stellenbosch FC. Thabiso Monyane scored the other, while Riandre Vries and Kabelo Moagi were on the scoresheet for Masandawana.

According to KickOff, this was the visitors' seventh win on the bounce, while the unusually off-colour Sundowns lost their fourth match in a row. Also, the Diski Challenge's Twitter account revealed that Radiopane was now joint top goalscorer with Stellenbosch striker Fuad Johnson on nine goals each.

Elsewhere, Kaizer Chiefs continued to suffer at the hands of Royal AM this season, losing 5-4 to the upstart Durban outfit.

DStv Diski Challenge results round 11:

Mamelodi Sundowns 2-3 Orlando Pirates; Royal AM 5-4 Kaizer Chiefs; Marumo Gallants FC 2-5 Chippa United; Maritzburg United 1-1 AmaZulu; Stellenbosch FC 2-0 TS Galaxy; SuperSport United 1-1 Cape Town City; Baroka FC 1-0 Golden Arrows; Sekhukhune United 2-2 Swallows FC.

Radiopane has earned himself some praise from football watchers, with some encouraging him to head abroad as soon as possible.

"Manchester City wants to sign Radiopane before the window closes. Whatch out Whatch out whatch out!"

@VelaphiSibaya said:

"It's a pity the boy did not get enough game time in the 1st team. He should have done better than Kwame Pebrah. A star in the making, Radiopane belongs in #LaLiga."

@SCALO91 said:

"You gave Peprah 10 starts w/o even scoring a single goal but you will continue to give Radiopane 10-15 min to impress @orlandopirates..."

Why the Premier Soccer League can’t have fans but the Philly's Games did

Fans hoping to attend live Premier Soccer League games in the new year will be sorely disappointed.

According to Sports Brief, PSL Chairperson Dr Irvin Khoza recently addressed the media in which he provided an update as to why there would be no fans at PSL games just yet.

The PSL has come under fire of late for its lack of fans while the hugely popular Philly's Game did have fans in attendance.
