Letsoalo stars as Royal AM shock Chiefs


Victor Letsoalo with a work-rate of a donkey grabbed a brace for newcomers Royal AM in a 4-1 DStv Premiership victory over Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday night at FNB Stadium in Soweto.

The AM striker took advantage of some sloppy Chiefs defence to put new coach Stuart Baxter under a lot of pressure after only four games in the league.

Letsoalo opened the scoring in the 34th minutes of the game before completing his brace with a well-taken free-kick in the 66th minute. He walked away with the Man of the Match award.

A few minutes later, Sifiso Hlanti pulled one back for the home side but Sibusiso Mabiliso put the ball into his own net to give the KwaZulu-Natal a 3-1 lead.

Deep into stoppage time, Mfundo Thikazi scored the fourth goal as Royal AM travel back to KZN with all the three points and a famous win over Chiefs.
