Royal AM’s win also saw them replace Kaizer Chiefs in second spot, Sowetan LIVE reported. Kaizer Chiefs earlier beat Baroka to move above Orlando Pirates on the table but were soon replaced by Royal AM.

Royal AM are only competing in their first season in the Premiership. The team previously competed in the GladAfrica Championship but made their way into the Premiership after buying out Bloemfontein Celtic, Goal.Com reported.

Fans have since come out in praise of the team, with many surprised by their performance this season.

Here's how social media reacted:


"When players are getting paid for the work they do , they perform #RoyalAM #DStvPrem #DSTVPREMIERSHIP"


"Congratulations to Mamkhize, Andile and #RoyalAM for winning 3 points on Dstv Prem against Supersports United FC"


#RoyalAM is here to stay @OfficialPSL"


"Royal AM is turning out to be Dangerous"


"There is a gentleman on this app who did not want Royal Am to be in the PSL but looking at the PSL log his team is languishing in the relegation zone while Royal am is no 2 in the same league"

DStv Premiership: Royal Am stuns Supersport United to go second on log table

The Tshwane outfit were looking to bounce back from defeat to Maritzburg United last time out, while the visitors from KZN had their sights set on second spot after going unbeaten in their last two games.

Kaitano Tembo's Supersport United had the first sniff at goal after just four minutes when Iqraam Rayners drew a save out of Patrick Nyame with his venomous shot from range, Sports Brief earlier reported.

The hosts were presented with a golden opportunity to hit back immediately when the referee pointed to the spot after Thamsanqa Gabuza had gone down under a challenge from Lesego Manganyi inside the area. Jamie Webber failed to capitalise though, as his penalty was saved by Nyame.
