thumbnail Hello,

There were a number of poor results abroad this weekend, with Kagisho Dikgacoi's return to Crystal Palace ending in a 2-0 defeat as the Eagles slipped to a fifth loss this season

ENGLAND

Kagisho Dikgacoi made his return to the Crystal Palace starting lineup on Saturday, but his club faced more disappointment away from home, as Southampton defeated the Eagles 2-0, with goals from Pablo Osvaldo and Rickie Lambert proving to be the difference.

It was Crystal Palace's fifth defeat in six Premier League games, with the club becoming instant relegation candidates this season.

In the Championship, Bongani Khumalo was strong in defence for Doncaster Rovers, as his side held on for a vital 1-0 win away from home against Sheffield Wednesday. Dean Furman was also involved during the match, with the three points moving Rovers away from the relegation zone and up to 17th spot on the Championship standings.

Tokelo Rantie played his first entire 90 minutes for new club Bournemouth against Blackburn Rovers, but was unable to find the back of the net. However, the striker did provide an assist to set up Ryan Fraser who scored Bournemouth's only goal of the game. Rovers were clinical in front of goal, winning the match 3-1.

Kgosi Nthle had to watch from the bench as Peterborough United notched up a consecutive win, this time defeating Rotherham United 1-0 away from home. The Posh have moved within three points of League One leaders Leyton Orient.



NETHERLANDS

Thulani Serero did not play for Ajax Amsterdam due to injury with his side returning to form, defeating Go Ahead Eagles 6-0.

Kamohelo Mokotjo was in Eredivisie action and struggled to inspire, as his PEC Zwolle side were held 0-0 by NAC Breda.

BELGIUM

Anele Ngcongca played at right-back for Genk as they sealed a 1-0 win over Mechelen at home. The result moves Genk up to fifth on the Belgian league standings.

Darren Keet was in goal once more for Kortjik on Saturday, with his side sealing a second consecutive victory this week, by defeating Belgian league strugglers Waasland-Beveren 2-1 at home.

Ayanda Patosi was involved for thirty minutes this weekend for Lokeren, with his side faltering during a 4-2 loss to Zulte-Waregem. Patosi continues his slow comeback from injury and will hope for more game time as the season progresses.

ISRAEL
Dino Nldovu was disappointing during Maccabi Haifa's 0-0 draw with Bnei Sakhin this weekend. The striker was substituted at half time as he continues to struggle to match his performance levels from last season.
