Cape Town Spurs and Orlando Pirates were among the biggest winners in the latest DStv Premiership fixture list, while Royal AM added to Richards Bay FC’s woes at the lower end of the league table.

The Urban Warriors made it two wins on the trot in the league this weekend, as goals by Ashley Cupido and Katlego Maphathe were enough for Ernst Middendorp’s side at the Athlone Stadium.

As stands, Spurs remain at the bottom of the table, three points behind Richards Bay FC who suffered a 2-1 loss against Royal AM on Saturday night.

Over in Soweto, Kaizer Chiefs recorded a 0-0 draw with Moroka Swallows at the FNB Stadium on Saturday as the Glamour Boys jotted down their third stalemate in succession. With Chiefs sitting in 6th position, Orlando Pirates moved into 4th on the log following their 1-0 win against Polokwane City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

In what was a dominant display by Jose Riveiro’s side on the road, Evidence Makgopa’s 68th minute strike separated the two sides in Polokwane.

Elsewhere, Stellenbosch and Chippa United could not be separated in their respective clash on Friday evening following their 1-1 draw at the Danie Craven Stadium.
