  • The fourth round of the 2022/23 DStv Premiership season offered more drama in what is proving to be an intriguing campaign
  • Kaizer Chiefs got its campaign on track with a morale-boosting 1-0 victory over new boys Richards Bay FC
  • Mamelodi Sundowns' title defence continued to be patchy after they were held by a stubborn Sekhukhune United
  • Orlando Pirates missed the opportunity to end the weekend at the top of the field after a sterile draw against nemesis SuperSport United

Round four of the 2022/23 DStv Premiership season continued to provide more questions than answers, much to the joy of the neutral observer.

High-flying Amazulu cemented their place at the top of the table, while troubled Cape Town City found itself continuously propping up the table.

In terms of the glamour cubs, Kaizer Chiefs were the biggest winners as they saw off the pesky newcomers Richards Bay FC. Mamelodi Sundowns, the defending champions, continued to look beatable as they dodged defeat against Sekhukhune United.

The most disappointed of the bunch will definitely be Orlando Pirates, which had the chance to rise to the top of the league, placing pressure on their rivals. However, they disappointing once again in front of goals in an uninspired draw against their hoodoo side SuperSport United.

Kick Off, South Africa's most famous football magazine, publishes final physical edition

Kick Off magazine has published its final physical copy.

As reported by Sports Brief, regarded as something of a footballing bible on the South African footballing landscape, the publication is going fully digital after 28 years of existence in hard copy format.

It was reported that Kick Off had been dealing with financial difficulties for some time, as most print media in the country contended with shrinking numbers as economics and digitisation ruled the roost.
